Bath & North East Somertset Council

Balancing your needs - a Parking Strategy for B&NES

Travel affects everyone and dealing with transport issues is an important part of the Council’s priorities.

We recognise that no single transport initiative on its own has the power to transform travel choices, cut congestion, improve air quality or ease parking issues.

We have developed a Parking Strategy to set out a long term plan for managing parking across Bath & North East Somerset. This is part of a package of transport improvements to help meet rising demand and reduce the impact of traffic on local people and the historic fabric of Bath as a World Heritage site.

The strategy is based on previous public consultation, and the views already expressed about parking from residents, local business, Parish Council’s, interest groups and the general public.  Further public engagement was undertaken to consider peoples feedback about the content of the strategy ahead of its recommendation to the council for adoption.  The strategy aims to balance the needs of local people and business, and a range of social, economic and environmental issues like congestion and air quality.

The Parking Strategy was formally adopted by the council on 7th February 2018.  We are now developing an Action Plan to support its implementation.  

The Parking Strategy and supporting documents can be found in the 'Related documents' section of this page. 


Coach Strategy

We briefly outline plans for coach parking in our strategy.  The council approved the development of Odd Down Park & Ride for long stay coach parking on 7th February 2018.
