The site lay within a controlled parking zone and no on-site parking was proposed. The appellant had submitted a unilateral obligation confirming that residents would not be allowed to apply for parking permits. However, an inspector noted that it appeared to relate to a different scheme, had not been signed by the mortgage company nor signed. Consequently, he could place no weight on it. In his opinion despite the accessibility of the site by a range of means of transport, in the absence of a mechanism which would prevent residents from applying for a parking permit, there was s risk that this would increase demand for spaces in a location where there was substantial demand.
