ABSTRACT

Urban areas face the problem of traffic congestion. City Centers are the destination of many people traveling to work, school or business every day. The spatial structure of a city is not fixed in space, but is subject to constant transformations associated with a vast array of social, economic and environmental processes. One of the processes that we can observe in Polish cities is the increasing number of parking spaces. In the urban planning of the development of large Polish cities, the trend of reducing car traffic for public transport is being developed. To this end, urban public spaces are designated for the location of collective car parks that allow you to leave your car and reach your desired destination within the city by means of public transport or on foot.
The purpose of this article is to analyze a specific parking area in terms of biologically active and hardened surface ratios. Depending on the surface being used, type of parking (overground, underground, multi-storey) and layout of parking places the possibility of using biologically active surfaces changes. The article aims to build a profit and loss balance for all options.
