The report describes current parking policy in five Norwegian cities (Bergen, Kristiansand, Oslo, Stavanger and Trondheim). We have reviewed the policies stated (goals and measures) in comprehensive planning documents and political decisions. All five cities have the intention of limiting new parking lots. The number of parking spaces in central areas (CBD) and regulations for their use are described. Parking practice is divided between planning (new parking spaces) and the control of parking regulations related to existing places. The cities should be concerned about a further privatization of parking which will reduce future possibilities of using parking as a policy measure. By requiring in lieu fees instead of parking spaces the cities can gain control of a larger part of the supply.
