Planning regulations in relation to parking provision

Comment 8th July 2010

Present Labour Government planning guidance requires parking maxima in new developments,. This was intended to deter car usage but has led to more on-street parking and congestion. Planning guidance should revert to parking minima to ensure there is adequate off-street parking provision.

Why does this matter?

New developments are cramped with inadequate parking provision. This reduces neighbour amenity. restricts access by refuse and emergency vehicles and causes on-street parking in the neighbourhoood. This change would put cars back where they should be, close to the owners.
