The 1991 Road Traffic Act gave Local Authorities in London, and subsequently the rest of the UK, the opportunity to take over greater responsibility for their own parking management. Previously, for many authorities their experience was limited to design work and to operation of off-street parking. For many authorities, this was both an opportunity and a challenge. Many sought outside expertise and RTA Associates Ltd was formed to fulfil that need.

Since 1991, we have assisted around 200 Local Authorities, in Great Britain and abroad, in a wide variety of parking issues, initially with the Council’s implementation of Decriminalised Parking Enforcement or Civil Parking Enforcement and their subsequent operation and policy management.

The company has a vast knowledge of many issues faced by Councils in managing their own parking operations. We can draw on our experiences of assisting many authorities in many different circumstances. RTAA has expanded its role to provide advice on financial modelling and appraisal, feasibility and efficiency studies including shared services and Traffic Regulation Order and Moving Traffic Orders writing and appropriateness reviews. We also provide a GIS mapping service.

The Managing Director and the three senior staff at RTAA have all worked for Local Authorities or their contractors themselves, and therefore have experience in a wide range of disciplines in addition to Parking including Transport Policy, Traffic Management, IT systems development, Contract Management, Financial Management and collaborative working.

Therefore we have the skills to assist you to put cost effective and efficient parking and traffic management at the heart of your transport policies.
