Policy INF 2: Public car parks

Existing public car parks should be retained in use as such. Development proposals involving the loss of public car parking spaces will only be permitted where:

  1. the spaces are adequately replaced either on the site or nearby; or
  2. it is satisfactorily evidenced through a car parking survey and/or travel plan that the spaces lost are surplus to demand; or
  3. their loss can be acceptably offset through improvements to other nearby transport facilities and these improvements are provided or funded by the developer.
