Renting parking spaces
The decision on whether renting out a parking space requires planning permission will depend on:
- Whether it results in a material change in the use of the space. This will depend on whether a space is used in a significantly different way to how a parking space would normally be used (irrespective of the identity of the driver). For example, if by renting out spaces, it causes a notable public or neighbour nuisance. A local planning authority will make this decision based on relevant facts and on a case by case basis.
- Whether there are any other relevant planning considerations, such as planning conditions, which impose restrictions that prevent parking spaces being rented out.
