Abstract

Provision for kerbside activities is crucial for the functioning of economic and social activities, but space allocation for these activities is usually an afterthought, when compared to managing moving traffic. There is a lack of guidelines to assess demand for kerbside activities and allocating kerbside space. Strategies to manage the kerbside have had different degree of success. This paper examines the relationships between the intensity of kerbside activities and the distribution of land use. Data on kerbside use in two high streets in London was analysed through regression and spatial analysis to determine how kerbside activities and the illegal use of spaces were related to the characteristics of premises and streets. We found that the number and duration of parking and loading activities were associated with the presence of some types of businesses, such as supermarkets and takeaway shops. Floor area was related to the number of parking activities, duration of loading activities and, when interacted with specific types of businesses, with duration of parking activities. Illegal activities were frequent in both case studies and concentrated at loading bays and locations at the start and end of loading and parking bays. The study provided fresh evidence that kerbside activities are related to frontage land uses and that illegal activities are prevalent when kerbside space is scarce or is inefficiently managed. The estimated models can be used predict the effects of changes in land uses on the number and duration of parking and loading activities.
