Whitehill & Bordon Parking Strategy

East Hants District Council have commissioned Feria Urbanism to work alongside The Chase Architects on a parking strategy for Whitehill & Bordon. This project required the production of visualisations and illustrations of innovative parking solutions and plot/building designs. The visual material was used to obtain views from members of public about general acceptability and suitability. Our work related to a wider project that involved digital engagement with the public on the design of new development and the accommodation of the car in contemporary urban design.
Our team explored the existing car parking typologies currently found across the town to understand what works well and what could be done better. We also undertook research into the approaches taken in other places. Our team used this information to consult with residents through an online platform to understand preferences for car parking. Scenarios for testing included how a different numbers of vehicles (high and low) could be accommodated and how the number of cars a typical household may own could change over time. We also assessed how different storage solutions can shape and influence the adjacent public realm.
This project was funded through the Department for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities’ PropTech Engagement Fund -Round 2.
