Consultation to enable county-wide parking standards to be adopted
Public input is being sought on new guidelines over how much parking space new housing estates, factories and offices should have in Bucks. Bucks County Council (BCC) is carrying out the consultation on the guidance which has been drawn up for developers, covering cars, bikes, motorcycles and blue badge holders, and will then review the proposals once feedback is in. The new guidelines aim to include:
- accounting for variations between urban and rural communities
- realistic parking facilities, recognising that each development will have its own particular needs.
The consultation is open until 31st October 2014 and can be completed online: see here, and copies will be available at libraries.
County Councillor Ruth Vigor-Hedderly, Cabinet Member for Transport, says “With more than 300,000 private cars and vans in Bucks, we’ve the highest percentage of 3-plus car households in the south-east, we need to help our residents and visitors to park well”. For information see link here.
