The winners


Over 650 people attended the 21st anniversary edition of the British Parking Awards, which took place at the Royal Lancaster London on 15 September. The winners were revealed in a ceremony hosted by the much loved comedian and broadcaster Mark Steel, ably assisted by voiceover artist Roger Tilling who narrated the impressive digital stageshow that was created by the events team at Landor LINKS.

There were three types of trophy: the classic glass trophy presented to the competitive category winners and recipients of special awards such as the Lifetime Achievement; the Parking Rosettes presented for Connected Parking, School Streets and Safer Places; and the EVolution Awards for the provision of electric vehicle infrastructure.

This year’s parking awards ceremony coincided with Park(ing) Day, an international festival that sees kerbsides converted into ‘parklets’ that can be used for all manner of activities, other than parking a car!

We next gather at the Royal Lancaster on 13 September 2024. Yes, it’s a Friday the 13th! But the British Parking Awards 2024 will be definitely be lucky for some!
