Design Outcome

​The best solution for parking provision on or off site will have to balance issues of location (in relation to house), topography, block configuration and set back, as well as market preferences and statutory policy requirements. 

Often a combination of parking solutions is required, especially as the number of terraced houses increases on a site or if there is a mix of housing types within a scheme.

In terraced housing arrangements, the five main parking options described in this section include: 

  • Parking in garages and hard standings accessed from the front
  • On-street parking
  • Parking in garages and hard standings accessed from the rear
  • Grouped (surface)
  • Grouped (basement, podium and undercroft)
