Zipcar for Property Developments


Here at Zipcar we've been working with property developers, travel consultants, local authority and housing associations to deliver bespoke car sharing clubs for developments across the UK. So far we have teamed up with over 1000 developments to help meeting Section 106 regulations and give their residents their own bespoke property development car club.


We have successfully installed more than 250 vehicles in developments for shared residential use, whilst also allowing members to have access to our 3,000 cars and vans across the UK.

Section 106: Car Clubs


Car clubs associated with new developments are generally secured through a Section 106 agreement which is an agreement between the developer and a LPA detailing financial measures that the developer agrees to undertake to often reduce the development’s impact on the surrounding area. The agreement aims to obtain concessions and contributions from the developer in return for planning consent.

Typically, Section 106 agreements relating to car clubs involve one or more of the following;

  • A set amount per unit to support the costs of the car club operation.


  • A set amount for vehicle bays/signage.


  • Funds to offer incentives to promote the car club such as free membership for an initial period.
