In 2018, the Department for Transport published a survey of lorry parking in England which estimated that there are 15,012 spaces available. These included lorry parks (including Motorway Service Areas), industrial/retail estates and laybys within 5 kilometres of the strategic road network.

The data was recorded by region and not by county.
