Car Parking Guidelines Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

Shortcut to this page :www.birmingham.gov.uk/carparkingspd

This city wide document, adopted in February 2012, sets out the car parking standards which will apply when we consider planning applications for new development. The document aims to ensure that

  • access needs of new developments are properly provided for
  • a balance is struck between the needs of different road users
  • the impact of new development on congestion is minimal
  • Birmingham continues to attract new investment and development

The document also sets out proposed standards for parking for people with disabilities and for cycle and motorcycle parking. It also sets out in general terms where we might seek financial contributions from developers towards public transport improvements through legal agreements attached to planning applications.

You may also like to look at the general Council Parking Policy document approved in May 2010 which looks at how we manage car parking across the city, such as blue badge use and park and ride schemes. We have also prepared a Car Parking Design Guide.

Document Status : Statutory Policy Document - Adopted February 2012
