Centre for London – Future of Parking Survey

Savanta ComRes surveyed London residents about their household’s car usage, their attitudes about parking and how they would like street space in their local area to be prioritised.

  • Londoners want to see streets space in their local area prioritised for trees and other green space (62%), pavements free of clutter (57%), children’s play space (47%) and community space, such as seating and recreation space (44%).
  • On street parking for residents was the fifth-highest priority for street use (43%), closely followed by dedicated disabled parking bays (41%) and priority bus lanes (40%).
  • Drivers are reluctant to give up the convenience of their own car. 44% of car owners agreed with the statement “I rarely use my car, but I still need it for occasional trips” and 69% of car owners agreed they would not move to a new home without parking provision, even if it had good access to public transport.
