Ease of access to Basingstoke is key to supporting the vitality and economic viability of the borough. The Borough Council has a responsibility to review car parking in Basingstoke and create plans for the amount, type and location of parking, which will support the growth of the borough and changing patterns of demand.
As a result, a revised Strategic Approach to Parking which considers the emerging Town Centre Masterplan, was adopted by the council on 6 December 2022. This document will now be the basis for developing future policies and making decisions with respect to parking and any related matters. The document can be downloaded below.
