ESTABLISHMENT OF A BASIS OF COMPARISON FOR PARKING ARRANGEMENTS IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS

ERMITTLUNG VON VERGLEICHSMASSSTAEBEN FUER DIE ZUORDNUNG DES RUHENDEN VERKEHRS IN WOHNGEBIETEN

THE RESEARCH IS CONCERNED WITH THE PROBLEM OF PARKED VEHICLES IN PURE RESIDENTIAL AREAS. IN PART 1 URBAN PLANNING PRINCIPLES RELATING TO PARKED VEHICLES WERE ESTABLISHED ON THE BASIS OF EXAMPLES TAKEN FROM VARIOUS TOWNS IN THE FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF GERMANY. IN PART 2 CURRENT PARKING REQUIREMENTS IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS ARE TO BE DETERMINED BY MEANS OF INTERVIEWS. FURTHERMORE PARKING REQUIREMENTS ARE TO BE EXAMINED WITH RESPECT TO TYPES OF PRIVATE AND VISITING TRAFFIC AND WITH RESPECT TO DAYTIME FLUCTUATIONS. EFFORTS WILL BE MADE TO DISTINGUISH BETWEEN SHORT TERM AND PERMANENT PARKERS. RECOMMENDATIONS ARE TO BE DERIVED FOR THE POSITIONING AND DESIGN OF FACILITIES FOR PARKED VEHICLES IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS.
