Why attend?

The traffic and parking sector has played a central role in the response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Towns and cities across the UK implemented an impressive range of emergency traffic and street-scene measures, including pop-up cycleways and wider pavements to make cycling and walking safer, while supporting the logistics sector in maintaining essential supplies and services were maintained

Richard Williams

Director,

Transfer360

Transfer 360 connects ticket issuers (parking operators, local authorities & tolls) directly to vehicle leasing companies to standardise, monitor and automate the process of transferring the liability for a ticket (PCN) to the vehicle hirer.

Ticket issuers check against Transfer360 when processing a ticket to a vehicle. If the vehicle is registered as lease or fleet owned, the hirer details are returned automatically. Allowing the first letter to be sent directly to the driver. The process avoids the need for a DVLA lookup, initial notice to keeper and manual liability processing. The system also reduces liability issues, brings forward cash flows and improves payment rates.

Steven Foster.jpg

Steven Foster

Parking Team Manager,

Newcastle City Council

As parking team manager, I have responsibility for the day to day parking enforcement operations across the city.  Event planning is something that we need to be involved with from the outset in order to understand the attendance levels and impact as well as understanding the areas that require an increased patrol presence.  I work closely with the event organisers to understand the parking needs of the event as well as the anticipated increase in traffic flow and how best to deploy officers to ensure that the area can remain as congestion free as possible.  Organising for events can involve frequent events, such as football matches, with an outline of a plan prepared to be built upon to support specific concerns, through to the organisation and implementation of new events such as having to facilitate parking for a re-routed Great North Run event.  The planning of events is critical to ensuring that the network is able to remain as congestion free as possible as well as being central to people attending the event.
