The Committee considered the report of the Off-Street Parking Task and Finish Group. The Chairman of the Group stated that that the number of off-road parking spaces allowed by the County Council was often too few.


The Committee discussed further concerns regarding cycle parking within the district but decided that these concerns could be addressed at the next meeting of Full Council.

3.     That the HDC Parking Protocol for new residential builds throughout HDC be:

1 bed    2 parking spaces

2 bed    2 parking spaces

3 bed    3 parking spaces

4 bed    3 parking spaces

4.     A new parking protocol be developed for business sites, retirement homes, care homes and restaurants & takeaways.

5.     Ducting for electrical car charging be placed in all new builds.
