Car clubs and housing developments

Car clubs play a crucial role in enabling people to reduce their car use and to reduce the demand for space to park cars. Considering the UK forecasts of future population growth and housing expansion, it is more important than ever that we maximise the potential for car clubs to achieve a range of public policy objectives.


Carplus has produced information and guidance for property developers, housing associations and local authorities on the incorporation of car clubs in developments.
