Policy TRA3(a) – Parking Standard for Residential Development Policy Analysis and Conclusions on Soundness 7.11.1 The policy sets parking standards for a range of development across Ashford. It is the view of GDL that setting stringent minimum requirements for parking standards for residential development is an unnecessary policy. Of particular concern is the need for a minimum of 3 spaces for 4 bedroom houses, in certain locations where sustainable non car based forms of transport (as enco

* Policy TRA3 sets out parking standards for residential development but no reference is made to provision for visitor parking.

Please find see attached document. Paragraph 3a & 3b extract below: Policy TRA3 (a) & (b): Parking Standards for Residential Development & Non Residential Development 5.20 In general we welcome the flexibility that has been introduced for departures from the parking standards set out in the Policy. However, we disagree that is should be for the Borough Council to determine if parking standards on any particular site should be reduced or increased depending on the circumstances listed at cr

TRA3a p218 Parking in residential areas The Parish Council considers that the parking allocation for large houses i.e. 4-beds + is too little if the provision of a garage is not regarded as a parking space. The Parish Council has also found that parking courts where the parking is divorced from the front of the house are not used. These should not be part of any design. Adequate parking for visitors should be provided. Parking should be restricted at key road junctions, e.g. the junction of Chu

Policy TRA3 (a) & (b): Parking Standards for Residential Development & Non Residential Development 3.17 We have no objection to the principle of the Parking Standards and support criteria a-g which outline a degree of flexibility to the application of such policies. However, we disagree that it should be for the Borough Council to determine whether proposals on a particular site should be increased or decreased. 3.18 The NPPF (para 154) advises that Local Plan policies must be 'clear'.

Ref 5.258 We object to the statement. Inadequate parking provision on new estates and within residential garden development has been widely advertised in letters of complaint, objections to planning applications and other media resources.

Ref TRA3(a) Homes of 5/6 bedrooms are now becoming the norm. Extra parking provision should be made for these within this policy.many small businesses which require trade vehicles now operate from home. These become problematic parking issues. No parking provision has been made for them. Allowance should be made for them within new developments or a financial contribution made to provide parking elsewhere.

TRA3a - We welcome the wording that one per unit may be justified in the central areas of larger developments. But the policy is unjustified and does not provide sufficient clarity that: * Chilmington is considered to have 'central areas' * These are C3 residential parking standards * Chilmington is considered to be suburban location * 4 bedroom housing requires 3 parking spaces.

ABC's allowance of parking spaces for individual houses and visitor parking is to be applauded (TRA3), but we would welcome a plan for improved parking provision in Tenterden (TRA2), where the problem is becoming acute. The proposed extension of parking at the Leisure Centre will not solve the problem in our opinion.
