Guidance on Parking in New Developments

The Council provides guidance on parking in new residential and commercial developments to inform the determination of planning applications by Local Planning Authorities (LPAs). It addresses the amount of car and cycle parking that is expected to be provided and includes advice to developers and the LPAs on the highway impacts of parking provision in new developments.


The current guidance was last reviewed in 2010 (residential) and 2003 (commercial) and needed to be reviewed again to ensure it is fit for purpose, up to date and consistent with current national planning policy and guidance.
