The Estate has worked with Bransby Wilson for nearly 10 years and have recently renewed the contract. We choose to continue to use their services as they understand the complex parking requirement surrounding the estates 28 car parks.
The Estate owns a significant amount of land and property in Malton, a market town in the heart of North Yorkshire and known as the ‘Food Capital’ of the north. Its annual Food Lovers Festival attracts thousands of visitors across the weekend and in 2019, the town welcomed more than 45,000 to the foodie extravaganza. A food market is held each month in the town which attracts a large number of visitors from the surrounding area and in addition, a cattle market is also held during the working week on the outskirts which often require certain car parks to be closed.
The Estate car parks are used by the public, both commercial and residential tenants and monthly permits sold to provide income to the estate.
The enormity of the project presented its own challenge and each of the 28 car parks owned by the estate individual parking terms to account for. Some spaces are allocated to businesses, others to permit holders and some reserved for public use only.
The Estate also wanted to promote visiting Malton to tourist/nonlocals by offering 2 hour free parking in its central car parks. This would need smartly enforcing to ensure non abuse by businesses and staff.
The permit management system in place was outdated and the Estate’s administration staff spent several hours each day maintaining it.
