size of kerbside/parallel parking spaces?
Amanda McDermott posted a topic in PlanningHello, I'm trying to find some recent guidance for size (in particular, length) of normal kerbside parking bays and struggling! Hoping someone here might just have it at their fingertips please? I've found in a couple of places that disabled bays should be 6.6m long, but what about normal 'parallel' bays? Seen 6.1m in an old (1999) AJ Metric handbook, but is that too short nowadays? We want to be sensible but not over generous (it's a scheme about encouraging walking and cycling really). 1.8m width seems to pop up in a few places, so we'll assume that. If anyone has a definitive and recent reference, please share!
Hi all, check out my news post about BSI's latest 'Flex' framework, aimed at raising competency standards across the built environment sector. The framework is aimed at key professions and trades including designers, contractors, fire risk assessors, building managers, and others in specialist technical or corporate roles, and is being developed using an iterative and dynamic process. More information on the 'Flex' can be found on the LI website here.
