If your land is located within the Principle Public Transport Network (PPTN) area boundaries of your Local Government Area, a reduced car parking requirement applies to your development site. This is specified under Clause 52.06 of the Planning Scheme. In certain development types such as restaurants, this can be a significant reduction of the required number of parking spaces. For the development to qualify under this scheme, it must fall within the PPTN area and your land must fully or partially fall within 400m of public transport access on the PPTN. Reduced parking provisions also promotes the use of active and public transport modes. It's always best to get these requirements checked before you rule out your development.
