Fistral Beach is Newquay's iconic beach. As one of the best surfing beaches in Europe, it is the perfect family beach offering simple pleasures of sea and surf combined with first class beach and seafront facilities including surf equipment hire, lessons, boutiques, hotels, restaurants and cafes.
Since May 2015, Smart Parking have been working with Fistral Beach operators Britanic Industries in managing the site’s car park. In January 2017 we will be increasing our service with the deployment of 206 vehicle detection sensors. Data captured through the sensors will feed into SmartApp - the parking availability app. Available on both iPhone and Android devices, drivers will have the ability to view a real-time map of vacant parking spaces prior to setting out.
The system will also integrate with Smart Parking’s industry leading SmartRep parking management software used to improve parking pattern analysis and future capacity decision-making.
The expansion untaken by Smart Parking reflects Britanic Industries’ continued development in further enhancing the user experience for visitors to Fistral Beach.
Commenting, Smart Parking CEO Paul Gillespie said that the company is pleased to have continued its service with Britanic Industries and Fistral Beach. “We are delighted to be given the opportunity to extend our involvement with one of the UK’s leading landmarks. The introduction of bay sensor technology will deliver real benefits by making parking more convenient for those working and visiting Fistral Beach.”
