Amendments to Accessible Parking Provisions

Variation to QLDC Proposed District Plan Chapter 29 Transport & Plan Change to QLDC Operative District Plan Section 14 Transport

The proposed changes amend the way accessible parking standards are expressed in the Operative District Plan and Proposed District Plan. 

The purpose of the proposed changes are to ensure that the removal of the minimum on-site parking standards required by the National Policy Statement on Urban Development 2020 does not inadvertently alter the current requirements for on-site accessible parking.
