20-0605 Maximum Surface Parking Area
It is required that the maximum dimension of the car parking is 600m2.
Currently we are meeting this requirement through the provision of a landscaping buffer that separates the car park in to two sections less than 600m2. However, the architect has noted that it would be a much better design outcome for the project to locate the landscaping buffer in alignment with one of the entries/glazed lobby areas. However, this will mean that one portion of the Car Park will exceed the 600m2 by around ~90m2.
Would this be acceptable?
Projects may not exceed 600 square meters of parking before separation is required. In order to meet this requirement, ILFI encourages the team to consider the inclusion of two landscape buffers: one to separate the parking area, and one near the entry and glazed lobby area.
