Parking Standards for Sustainable Communities: Design & Good Practice Supplementary Planning Document
The Parking Standards for Sustainable Communities SPD was
adopted by the Council’s Executive on 10th September
2014. The SPD replaces the Parking Standards SPG adopted in 1996
and Cycle Parking Standards adopted in 2006.
The SPD provides detailed guidance on locations for car, cycle,
disabled and motorbike parking, layouts and dimensions as well as
standards in terms of the number of spaces needed by land
use. Guidance on the provision of electric vehicle
infrastructure is also included.
The guidance should ensure that provision for
all vehicles is designed into proposed developments at the earliest
stage. The SPD includes standards which form a consistent basis for
discussion between developers and planners, allowing greater
certainty when planning applications are submitted which should
reduce the time taken to determine parking issues.
