Cash for clothes portable building reduces parking spaces

The siting of a portable building within a supermarket car park on the edge of a town centre in Berkshire would unacceptably harm the supply of parking spaces, an inspector has held.

Three parking spaces would be lost, the inspector concluded, and these served not only the supermarket but also a number of other retail outlets. Parking surveys indicated that the demand for spaces was at or near to the available capacity. Thus the loss of three spaces particularly at peak times such as weekends and school holidays would adversely affect the efficient operation of the parking area. It would also be potentially hazardous to those wishing to drop off old clothes since pedestrians would stand within the internal circulation area used by cars and heavier vehicles.
