Park4SUMP is organising a high level workshop on parking standards, which will take place on 18 May 2022. This free online event will be organised in cooperation with POLIS, ECF and the CIVITAS Handshake Project. The event will:

  • discuss the creation of a concise meeting report of best practices, which will be dispatched to EU and national level decision makers in the fields of mobility, urban planning and energy.
  • build a case for fixed ‘maximum’ parking  allowances to limit how much parking is provided in new buildings. Most countries have so-called “minimum requirements”. That implies building developers can build more if they want. 
  • showcase innovative ways to address parking and mobility norms, through neighbourhood parking and mixed-use parking.
  • build a case for bicycle parking to be an essential part of parking norms, as formulated in the EPBD.

This event specifically targets EU and national decision makers, as well as the EPBD. The event will provide basic information about current EU legislation and its impact at the local level and will provide opportunities to discuss challenges ahead and potential solution pathways.
