Parking impact analysis of the Council of the European Union - COBRACE


Since the commencement of the COBRACE regulation in February 2014, every company extending its environmental permit is automatically subject to the COBRACE regulation. This was the case for the Justus Lipsius building of the Council of the European Union in 2015.

The impact analysis counts two phases: a legal analysis in order to assure that the Council of the European Union is indeed subject to the regulation and an analysis of the impact on parking and mobility in general.

Traject carried out different types of analysis for this project (accessiblity of the site, work organization, mobility profiles of the employees…). Moreover, an observation of the parking occupancy allowed to measure different levels of saturation, including during European Summmits. The major political activity and the regular visits by Heads of State and ministers is an important aspect to include in the report. Organizing Summits inevitably has impact on parking and mobility.
