The National Planning Policy Framework sets out the Government’s policies for promoting sustainable transport, including on parking provision. The Framework explains that local authorities should seek to improve the quality of parking in town centres so that it is convenient, safe and secure. We believe that local authorities are best placed to determine the parking needs of their local communities, having regard to national planning policy.
