16.38.5 Disabled Car Parking

Where car parking is provided, whether for residents, employees, visitors or others, a number of car-parking spaces for people with disabilities should be provided on a proportional basis. At least 5% of the total number of spaces should be designated car-parking spaces, with a minimum provision of at least one such space.

In particular circumstances, the planning authority may require a higher disabled parking content depending on the nature of development. All disabled parking should be allocated and suitably signposted for convenient access.
