CAR PARKING

This report has outlined the growing need for traffic restraint, especially during the peak periods, and has noted some of the problems that might arise from the imposition of such restraint by the restriction of parking spaces in new developments. The standards suggested reflect the following 5 main policy criteria: (1), the need for more restraint orientated control over the movement of private cars during peak periods, particularly with regard to office commuter trips to those parts of the borough that are comparatively well served by public transport. (2), the standard of provision for commuters' cars to industrial/warehousing areas remote from public transport should be demand orientated. (3), journeys which can be made by car during the off-peak period, i.e. Shopping trips, pose no great problem and merit more generous standards than advocated by the glc. (4), the need for one space per dwelling as a minimum requirement with certain exceptions. (5), the parking requirements for other categories of development be treated on the merits of each case. Proposed car parking standards are summarised in an appendix. /TRRL/
