Parking (planning policy note)

​The parking guidelines sets out the provision of parking according to land use and type of development.

The purposes of the document are:​ 

  • to help with drawing up, submitting and processing planning and development applications for parking spaces
  • to achieve a consistent approach in processing applications
  • to ensure that sufficient parking and manoeuvring space for private cars and service vehicles are provided to serve a particular form of development and the traffic which it is likely to generate
  • to avoid the need for unnecessary on-street parking, which interferes with the free flow of traffic, causes danger to pedestrians and other road users and is often visually intrusive
  • the Island Plan recognises the need for formal parking guidelines which up to now have never been published
  • the standards set out in this document have been prepared in the light of recent trends in vehicle ownership and usage, changing demands of development, current experience in applying parking standards and the comprehensive transport policies set out in the Island Plan
  • the standards are set down for guidance only and it is not the intention to produce a set of inflexible rules, which are unnecessarily restrictive. Although it is expected that the standards will normally be met, there may be circumstances where they should not or cannot be rigidly followed. There will be occasions where it will be necessary to balance normal parking requirements for a proposed development against the need to meet other planning policies with regard to building density, design space about buildings and landscaping etc. In such cases, the applicant will be advised by the Planning Officer on variations to the specified standards which may either increase or decrease the level of provision
  • it is intended that these guidelines will be kept under periodic review to take on board changing circumstances
  • additional information and advice regarding layout, use, design and landscaping of vehicle parking spaces is available from us
