Why do I need to provide so many carparks?

Australia is a super car -dependent country- so it goes that any development will need to provide car parks in order for residents/staff/customers to access that development.

Each Local Government will have car parking rates set within their scheme- and you need to be able to provide them on the site/// or look at other ‘offset’s’ to providing them. For example the Gold Coast City Council’s car parking rates can be found here.

If you are developing a site for commercial purposes- this is going to be even more important- as you will need to show that you are not just ‘taking’ from the car parks on the street and becoming a burden on  the road transport network.

Give me  a shout and I’ll break it down a little more,
