With 8,000 staff and 33,000 students, the University of Leeds has introduced a number of car parking management systems to address demand for parking on campus, including a needs based permit application process, automatic number plate recognition cameras, paystations and back office systems to help manage the complex needs of the organisation. The University also decided to process enforcement notices in-house which involves dealing with the DVLA and debt recovery firms.
