The current Council Parking Standards, used to
assess the appropriate level of parking in new developments were
adopted in 2000. There is therefore a need to review and update
these to reflect current policies and best practice guidance.
A consultation on the Issues & Options surrounding the Parking Standards has already been carried out to help inform the review and update of the standards.
This report will propose an update and amendments to these parking standards for new developments. The report will seek approval to formally consult on the revised parking standards.
RESOLVED – (1) That the committee notes the outcome of the issues and options consultation undertaken prior to the development of new parking standards for new development;
(2) That the committee authorises the Executive Director Environment, Development & Housing to undertake formal public consultation on the draft Parking Standards SPD, attached at Appendix 1, and request that a report on the results is brought to a future meeting of this committee; and
(3) That the committee requests that the Executive Director Environment, Development & Housing prepares a best practice guidance document which shall include parking design and layout and that a draft document is brought to a future meeting of this committee.
