Steven Burgess of MRCagney will be speaking at the upcoming seminar on parking, "Parking Futures", put together by RMIT Universities Centre for Urban Research.
The seminar will go for half a day, with the opportunity to participate in workshops and hear from a range of speakers who will stimulate thought about the "breadth and interconnection between challenges surrounding parking."
From the event blurb:
Parking is a key component of many challenges cities face as they strive to be more sustainable and liveable. With more competition between uses for urban space, practitioners face numerous barriers as they attempt to shift use and supply of parking space in their efforts to creating efficient transport systems, housing diversity and effective urban design. Decisions are controversial whenever parking questions are involved.
At the heart of these challenges, information about trends, benefits and good practice are not always at hand to provide an evidence base to support new approaches to parking.
A common understanding about the key issues and information gaps is an important first step to help shift current debates.That’s the focus of the current project at RMIT, to map the challenges surrounding how we are transitioning our thinking and practice around car parking.
