Car Parking Standards for New Developments

The document presents a set of parking standards, and associated guidance for the provision of off-street parking. The standards will be applied to new or modified developments, which are subject of a planning application.

We have taken the opportunity to undertake a review of their parking standards, to take account of the following:

  • the national requirement to develop and implement a set of maximum parking standards
  • opportunities for the implementation of Travel Plans and developer contributions to promote non-car modes to developments
  • changes in development and travel patterns since 1995 when the parking standards were last reviewed

The standards and guidance within this document have been derived from local operational experience, national policy guidance and best practice, and a review of parking accumulations experienced at comparable sites across Scotland and the UK.

They have been the subject of wide-ranging public consultation, and tested against the results obtained from a series of specially commissioned car park accumulation surveys that were undertaken at key sites across Aberdeenshire.
