Most developers may not know the fact that you are not always obliged to provide parking for commercial development. In fact, even for residential developments, you can provide a reduced number of parking space and still get your planning permit application approved.
How? Yes, that’s what traffic engineers are for. We make assessments of nearby public and street parking, public transport facilities, bicycle and pedestrian connectivity and make an expert judgement regarding the general accessibility of your development.
We liaise with Council traffic engineers in justifying these requirements by quoting planning scheme clauses.
Next time you give up on a development opportunity because you don’t have enough car parking, give us a call. We can assist.
