Parking, Multi-modal Streets and Urban Design


AAUD has extensively researched car parking needs for Town and Village Centres and TOD’s and has regularly promoted innovative policies and practices with respect to:

  • parking provision (reduced)
  • parking location
  • dual and complementary use
  • shared parking
  • improved walkability and amenity
  • improved multi-modal street design
  • improved transit interchanges

These practices are on display in the following projects:

DP2, WA (Multiplex)

A review of Council standards enabled a 50% reduction in parking numbers (dual and complementary) and area with consequent improved walkability and amenity, increased yield (of density housing) and improved economic performance.

Mawson Lakes (Lend Lease)

A review of parking needs and standards, transit-interchange, commuter parking and parking management led to recommendations for reduced parking requirements, improved interchange, reduced parking dominance, increased TOD performance, enhanced walkability and potential reduced vehicle/kms travelled.

Rhodes TOD (Council)

A review of development potential and parking requirements formed the basis for increased TOD performance (increased densities, improved walkability, reduced car ownership, improved management).

North Penrith TOD (Landcom)

A careful analysis of dwelling yield, land-use, building typology and parking requirements formed the basis of an affordable, viable, medium density, mixed-use TOD (under construction).

Bowden Village TOD (LMC, SA)

A careful analysis of density vs parking requirements fed into the ultimate Masterplan and built form for this exciting TOD in inner Adelaide.
