Draft Policy CS11: Parking and supporting text at Paragraph 3.179
We object to draft Policy CS11 and supporting text at paragraph 3.179 on the basis that it does not reflect national planning guidance, namely PPG13: Transport. In relation to car parking, PPG13 advises that reducing the amount of parking in new development is essential, as part of a package of planning and transport measures, to promote sustainable travel choices. It is therefore clear that promoting sustainable travel choices is a key consideration in the provision of car parking spaces.
As it stands, draft Policy CS11 and supporting text at paragraph 3.179 fails to identify the need to promote sustainable transport choices as a key consideration in parking provision. In accordance with PPG13, reduced car parking provision has to form part of a package of planning and transport measures if it is to successfully promote sustainable travel choices.
