Building on the SUMP and Port Master Plan evaluation processes findings, this measure would set up parking action areas based on CIVITAS best practices to control and enforce street parking in certain areas, especially around the Old Town Centre.
This measure will try to develop a new car parking policy for the city, including the port area, taking into consideration the current situation, all PORTIS findings and all information regarding SUMP and MPP implementation and also local urban development strategies and plans. The policy recommendation will be promoted at the local level for acceptance and approval.
In addition, this measure will provide the framework to analyse the introduction of Park and Ride schemes around the city. In this respect, a cost benefit/multi-criteria analysis will be conducted during the project’s implementation to identify the most suitable places for these schemes and their costs.
