Parking standards are not set nationally. The setting of parking standards is a matter for local authorities who know their areas best. The National Planning Policy Framework sets out matters that should be considered in setting these, including: the accessibility of the development; the type, mix and use of development; the availability of and opportunities for public transport; local car ownership levels; and the need to ensure an adequate provision for charging of zero and low emission vehicles.
