Positive Parking Framework for Cornwall

What is Positive Parking?

Cornwall Council has signed up to the national Positive Parking Agenda. The aim of the Positive Parking Agenda is to change perceptions, challenge misconceptions about the parking sector as well as local government’s role, and make the parking experience a better one for all concerned. The Agenda looks to provide effective and positive communications, promoting innovation and the use of technology, for the benefit of all. The Agenda addresses a range of key priorities including: congestion, safety, air quality, accessibility, technology, working together and fairness.

Cornwall Council has produced a Positive Parking Framework for Cornwall (pdf) which was approved by the Cabinet in June 2018.  This Framework has been developed to change the face of parking in Cornwall; to help support local economies; traffic management and our communities.  The Framework set outs principles for each of the following areas: Assets; Tariffs; Enforcement and Technology.

As delivery of the Framework progresses we will communicate our delivery plans, along with costs.

The national Positive Parking Agenda is looking to Cornwall to set a benchmark standard for other local authorities to follow.
