So I often get asked to name places that have abolished parking minimums parking requirements.
Including cities that now have no minimums in their city centre would yield a long list.
I’m looking for examples of cities/places that have removed minimum parking requirements in a relatively comprehensive manner. By “comprehensive” I mean they have removed minimums from more than simply in the city centre. Can anyone point me to some good examples? London’s the only one I have right now.
My very short answer is this: various cities in England and some in Germany have comprehensively abolished parking minimums.
But below the fold you will find a much longer answer.
The English parking standards story required a lot of sniffing around. I have some open questions on the German situation. And both Paris and Japan get little mentions even though they have not really repealed their parking minimums.
