To approve the revised Fareham Borough Non-Residential Parking Standards Supplementary Planning Document for Adoption.
This report describes the background and rationale for the production of a revised Fareham Borough Non-Residential Parking Standards Supplementary Planning Document (SPD) for Adoption. The SPD sets out guidance for developers and other interested parties on the levels of parking expected in non-residential developments within the Borough.
The need for new parking standards has arisen due to Hampshire County Council’s decision to withdraw its Parking Strategy and Standards (2002), which has previously been used as guidance on parking standards for relevant developments in the Borough.
The Council has used this opportunity to review local experience in the application of these standards and consider current local and national planning policies in order to issue updated guidance that will also apply to major development proposals such as Welborne and Solent Enterprise Zone at Daedalus.
The SPD explains the background to developing the new guidance and includes tables containing the parking standards to be applied for non-residential development in the Borough. This document will complement the guidance for residential developments given in the Residential Car & Cycle Parking Standards SPD (Fareham Local Development Framework) issued by Fareham Borough Council in November 2009.
(a) That the Executive notes the consultation comments received on the Draft Fareham Borough Non-Residential Parking Standards Supplementary Parking Document and agreed the proposed Council responses set out in Appendix A.
(b) That the Executive agrees to adopt the proposed Fareham Borough Non-Residential Parking Standards Supplementary Parking Document as set out in Appendix B.
(c) That subject to the adoption of new parking non-residential parking standards, the Executive agrees to the revocation of the policy to continue to use the Hampshire County Council Parking Strategy and Standards (2002) as the basis for guidance for an interim period.
