Public parking consultation for East Lindsey District Council

Aug 22, 2016

Enventure Research has been contracted by East Lindsey District Council (ELDC) to undertake a face-to-face survey with members of the public as part of its Parking Strategy Review. The District Council currently operates 55 car parks and would like to review tariffs charged at these to ensure they more closely reflect the needs and circumstances of each respective community.


A survey will be designed to collect insight into residents’ and visitors’ views on the current provision of parking, their current habits when driving into town, what is important to them when considering where to park and what impact changes to ELDC provided parking would have on them.


Trained, locally-based interviewers will conduct the survey with a random sample at key coastal and market towns over two separate weeks to allow for comparison between peak and off-peak seasons. The interviewing schedule will cover different times of the day on weekdays and weekends, with the team seeking to achieve a total sample size of 650 face-to-face interviews.


To encourage further participation in the consultation, an online version of the questionnaire will be securely hosted by Enventure Research and paper questionnaires will be made available in relevant locations across the district, such as local town halls, libraries and other customer access points.
