National Highways Lorry Parking Facilities Improvements Scheme

This grant provides lorry parking operators with support to improve HGV driver facilities through the provision of welfare facilities, parking and improved security.

Motorway service area operators and operators of service areas that provide facilities for professional drivers at rest areas operated by the private sector, on major trunk roads close to the strategic road network (up to radius of 5km), can apply for funds to improve their facility providing it offers benefits to professional drivers.

Applicants must provide match-funding of at least 50% of the cost of the projects.

National Highways is promoting a funding scheme of up to £20m to improve lorry parking facilities used by heavy goods vehicle drivers who rely upon good quality, safe and secure rest areas (the “Scheme”).  The Scheme is part of the National Highways Users and Communities Designated Fund.

Funds can be used to fund construction and refurbishment works, security equipment and installation, engineering and architecture and design, and fixtures and fittings.

The improvement project must not seek retrospective funding or funding for work that would be undertaken in any event should the funds not be issued.
