Pub car parking level compromised by external dining area

Due to inadequate on-site parking at a public house in southwest London an inspector was unable to grant retrospective permission for extending an outside dining area and patio due to the risk that it would undermine highway safety.

A total of 27 spaces were available set against the council’s parking standards which required 72 spaces. Even the appellant accepted that a maximum of 54 spaces were required, the inspector concluded, and the outside dining area was likely to lead to an increase in parking demand. Public transport links were poor and it was likely to lead to additional demand for on-street parking in an area which was already under parking stress.
