Decision details

Scheidt & Bachmann (S&B) switch out project – multi storey car parks infrastructure

Decision Maker: Bracknell Town Centre Regeneration Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


To outline the proposal to replace the existing pay on foot (on exit) parking equipment in the three town centre multi storey car parks with pay by plate (on arrival) infrastructure.


RECOMMENDED to the Executive Member for Economic Development and

Regeneration that the S&B infrastructure be retained for the remaining lifespan of the equipment.

Reasons for the decision:

There are pros and cons in relation to switching out the existing car parking

technology. Whilst the pros are easily quantifiable (cost saving, improvements in app

technology etc.) the cons are less structured. The impact on the customer

experience, particularly in the Avenue car park, is significant and is a potential risk.

As such it is recommended that the switch is not made at this time.

Alternative options considered:

No further proposals considered at this time.
