Car Parking - Scotland

Most councils will keep a record of their car parks, bays and zones (including parking-related TROs (Traffic Regulation Orders). Therefore we have tried to compile these into consistent national layers.

Currently, we publish four layers: - Car Parks - a polygon layer - Car Parks - a point layer - Parking Bays - a polygon layer - Parking Zones - a polygon layer

Any supplied line records (usually TROs) have been buffered by 2m to create a representative area and incorporate them into the national polygon layers.

Many partially populated attributes are currently published. However, we will look to rationalise this list in future iterations.

This dataset was amalgamated, optimised and published by the Spatial hub. The following quality assurance checks and corrections are carried out on the data: - Polygons are not dissolved/ aggregated by key name and local authority. - The minimum polygon area allowed in the data is 5 square metres - Checks for invalid geometry types - The maximum angle for any spikes is 3 degrees - Any duplicate geometry is removed from the data - Duplicate key names for polygons are not removed - Polygons with no key names are not removed - Checks for basic geometry i.e. self-intersection Please contact for more details.
