Parking standards for new developments – Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

Parking standards guidance

Our Parking Standards for New Developments Supplementary Planning Document (PDF) provides detailed guidance on parking for cycles, cars (including disabled parking) and powered two-wheeler parking for both residential and non-residential developments. This supplementary planning document (SPD) includes layouts and dimensions for parking spaces for various contexts.

We adopted this SPD on 1 August 2023; it is a material consideration in determining planning applications. All development proposals will be required to demonstrate that they have taken it into consideration.
