Store parking reduction leads to on-street parking fears

The change of use of part of a car park associated with a furniture store in Lancashire to use for the display of motor vehicles for sale would undermine highway safety by providing inadequate space for visiting customers, an inspector has decided.

The car park contained 30 spaces of which 13 would remain for use by customers. This was well short of the 70 spaces required under the council’s parking guidelines, the inspector recorded, and would potentially give rise to on-street parking in a location where this was already restricted. This would be detrimental to highway safety.
