Appendix C: Car Parking Standards Worked Example

The following provides a work example for how parking provision on site should be calculated:

Proposal

50 residential units located in the medium sustainability zone

General Requirements

50 units with a minimum of 0.3 spaces per unit and a maximum of 0.7 spaces per unit Minimum and maximum provision = 15 to 35 spaces

If 20 spaces are proposed this is acceptable for this proposal

Specific requirements

20% of total spaces unallocated = 20% of 20 = 4 unallocated spaces

10% of total spaces disabled = 10% of 20 = 2 spaces

10% of total spaces car club = 10% of 20 = 2 spaces

20% of total spaces active electric vehicle charge point = 4 spaces

Final Provision

Total spaces = 20, of which:

Unallocated spaces = 4 Allocated spaces = 14

Disabled spaces = 2 (can be part of unallocated provision)

Car club spaces = 2 (or off site provision through a contribution) Active electric vehicle charge point spaces = 4

Passive electric vehicle spaces = 16
