PARKING PLACE SURVEY IN MEDIUM-SIZED TOWNS TAKING ACCOUNT OF THROUGH TRAFFIC RESULTING FROM THE TOWN CENTRE POSITION

STELLPLATZNACHFRAGE IN MITTLEREN STAEDTEN UNTER BERUECKSICHTIGUNG DES UEBEROERTLICHEN VERKEHRS ALS FOLGE DER ZENTRALOERTLICHEN LAGE

THE WORKING COMMITTEE ON URBAN AND REGIONAL TRAFFIC IS MAKING EFFORTS TO DRAW UP A GUIDE FOR ESTIMATING PARKING PLACES NEEDED IN MEDIUM-SIZED TOWNS. THESE ARE TOWNS WITH ABOUT 200000 INHABITANTS WHICH HAVE AN ACTIVE PUBLIC TRANSPORT SERVICE AND USUALLY HAVE LARGE SCALE SETTLEMENTS IN THE CENTRE. IT MUST BE ENSURED THAT RESTRICTIVE PLANNING OF PARKING SPACE DOES NOT RESTRICT TRADE OR THE ECONOMIC POTENTIAL OF PLACES OF WORK. LIMIT VALUES FOR PARKING SPACE HAVE TO BE DEFINED WHICH SHOULD PREVENT THE INTRODUCTION OF STRUCTURAL DEVELOPMENT WHICH MIGHT PLACE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE REGIONAL PLANNING CONCEPT IN CENTRAL PLACES IN JEOPARDY. AN ANALYSIS IS TO BE MADE OF RELATIONS AND INTERACTIONS BETWEEN THE DEMAND FOR PARKING SPACE AND THE NEED FOR PARKING SPACE.
