The design process is seen as consisting of a series of inter-related steps: the determination of need, the components of the system, the network, its 'level of service' and the choice of an appropriate layout. This note discusses the process via a number of parking principles. These principles are: cater for parking demand; provide adequate size for each component; use parking space efficiently; introduce a discernible hierarchy of roads; provide appropriate entrance and exit conditions; minimize conflicts; separate decision points; provide clear information to users of the parking facility; reduce impediment to circulating vehicles; provide adequate sight distance; reduce visual intrusion; and maximize the amenity of the facility.
