Originality/value of paper
To the author’s knowledge, diary travel surveys have not previously been analysed to investigate parking demand. While the technique is most relevant to multiple-day diaries like NTS, the approach opens up the possibility of more extensive analysis of other surveys to reveal the patterns of parking, and duration in particular.
The assistance of David Leibling, co-author of the RAC Foundation Report ‘Spaced Out: Perspectives on Parking Policy’, is gratefully acknowledged, as is the RAC Foundation for funding the study on which much of this work is based. In addition, the provision of the NTS data from the ESDS (Economic and Social Data Service) archive, together with additional variables and advice provided by the DfT, is gratefully acknowledged. The data processing and conclusions remain nevertheless the author’s responsibility: no warranty is given by the DfT as to the accuracy and comprehensiveness of the data.
