ABSTRACT

The parking problem, as well as congestion of cities and environmental pollution is the result of urbanization and motorization process. A car is the basic means of transport for many residents. Unfortunately, it takes up space: in the workplace, at the place of residence, at a shop and at school. There is a big divergence between the needs of motorized residents and the city’s grounds potential. Meeting the residents’ parking needs, in line with their expectations seems impossible. The aim of the article is to analyze and compare planning regulations regarding the location of parking spaces in housing estates. The analysis included Master Plans created for undeveloped areas and for existing housing estates that may be a subject to modernization. The subject of research are five largest Polish cities: Warsaw, Krakow, Lodz, Wroclaw, and Poznan. These cities count between 539 545 and 1 758 143 inhabitants. These are attractive agglomeration centers that offer jobs and education possibilities for millions of people. As a part of the research parking regulations were compiled and parking indicators used for housing estates were cataloged.
