Please note that as of 1 September 2008 new Residential Parking Standards have been adopted as a Supplementary Planning Document (SPD).
Hampshire County Council as Highway authority have withdrawn the County Council’s Parking Standards and Strategy and it is now the responsibility of district council’s to set parking standards. These standards supersede the residential element of the Borough Council’s Parking Standards and Strategy (2003).
This revised standards recommend an approach that takes account of expected levels of car ownership in new development, in that sufficient provision should be made for the amount of parking that is likely to be needed by residents with the emphasis on promoting good design. This is seen as a priority in the review of current standards with a greater emphasis on design and layout and greater use of communal (unallocated) spaces to provide a more flexible solution for both residents and visitors.
The existing parking standards for other forms of development (non-residential) continue to apply and closely reflect the standards and strategy developed by Hampshire County Council and the Basingstoke Environment Strategy for Transport:Basingstoke Environment Strategy for Transport (BEST)Hampshire County Council's parking Strategy and Standards
