British Parking Awards 2019 are live!

Annual competition celebrates the best in parking management, design and technology

20 September 2018


The 2019 edition of the British Parking Awards is up and running. Now in its 18th year, the competition encourages both public and private sector organisations to nominate people and projects that represent the best in parking management, design and innovation.

The awards encompass both the on-street and off-street sides of the parking sector. The diverse nature of the parking sector means that the competition has categories that cover the design and upkeep of buildings, as well as ground-breaking policies, excellent services and innovative technology. This year there are three new categories:

  • The Parking as a Service Award will recognise operations and systems that put the driver and other users at the heart of the parking experience.
  • The Green Parking Award recognises environmentally-friendly car park and system design, as well as measures to mitigate the impact of vehicles.
  • The Reinventing the Car Park Award will recognise ways in which parking structures can become buildings that offer a real social benefit and host alternative uses.

Besides the recognition given to systems and structures, the British Parking Awards also highlight the human side of parking with a host of categories showcasing team work and celebrating the achievements of individuals.

Entries are judged by a panel of experts made up of parking managers, transport and parking consultants, representatives from the major parking associations and bodies representing the motoring and freight industries.

The British Parking Awards were created and are presented by Parking Review magazine, which has presented them annually since 2002. 

The awards ceremony, which takes place at the Royal Lancaster on London Friday 8 March 2019. 

The event is organised by Landor LINKS, which provides knowledge networks for people working in transport, parking and the urban realm.

Entry to the British Parking Awards is free.
