Car Policy

ConnectedCity villages do not exclude cars, but they have a clear car policy with the following goals:

  • Cars to be the first choice only in unusual circumstances (eg. when moving heavy objects or going to locations not on the rail network);

  • Pedestrians to have priority over cars;

  • Carriageways, pavements and verges to be uncluttered by parked vehicles;

  • Adequate visitor parking in designated spaces;

  • Residents’ parking (where provided) to be protected, convenient and usually suitable only for scooters and small city cars;

  • Parking spaces for larger/extra cars and vans to be limited and sold/let separately from the dwellings, with a maximum ratio of 0.5 per dwelling;

  • Parking spaces for residents' car clubs to be prioritised.

The details of car policy will vary according to local circumstances.
