CAR PARKING USE IN WYCOMBE DISTRICT
This analysis looks at public car parking in Wycombe District. The public car parks are located in High Wycombe, Princes Risborourgh, Marlow and Bourne End. The most important utility that a car park should be measured against is how many times a single space is used during a day. There are many factors that will affect this measurement, pricing and location being the two most important and whether the car park is designed as a short term/long term/single use/multiple use facility. The mapping highlights the turnover of spaces in Wycombe District ranging from over 13 uses/space/day in a small short term single use car park (District Council Offices)to less than 1 uses/space/day (Duke Street). Data related transition to destination and measurement of footfall around the car parks is not available at this time.
An overall parking strategy should take the volume/purpose (transition to destination) of each car park and combine with private car parking facilities to best serve the economic growth and wellbeing of a location.
