Parking Standards SPD
In July 2018 the council adopted a new Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) on Parking Standards for the determination of planning applications from 1 August 2018. These standards set out an approach that takes account of expected levels of car ownership in new developments and that sufficient provision is made for the amount of parking that is likely to be needed with the emphasis on promoting good design. It also includes standards for cycle, motorcycle and electric vehicle parking. The SPD replaces the Residential Parking Standards Supplementary Planning Document (July 2008) and the Hampshire Parking Strategy and Standards (2002) which have been withdrawn.
