All vehicular journeys begin and end with parking, so managing parking provision is a vital tool for addressing travel behaviours, reducing car ownership and usage and helping Birmingham to meet its priorities around climate change and clean air.

The Birmingham Parking Supplementary Planning Document (SPD), once adopted, will replace the existing Car Parking Guidelines SPD (2012), and support the replacement of the Birmingham Parking Policy (2010).

The document includes revised parking standards for new developments which reflect new national planning guidance and support the delivery of the Birmingham Development plan, the city’s Clean Air Strategy and the forthcoming Birmingham Transport Plan.

The SPD also sets out a parking strategy for Birmingham, taking a balanced approach to parking provision and promoting sustainable travel.

From 9th January 2020, Birmingham City Council would like to hear your views on the Birmingham Parking SPD Consultation Draft.
