HC Deb 14 February 1964 vol 689 c115W
Mr. Albu

asked the Minister of Education what number of prepared parking spaces, expressed as a proportion of the total number of staff and students, are to be provided for in colleges of advanced technology and regional colleges out of funds provided by his Department.

Mr. Chataway

Where parking is possible entirely on the surface of the site, car spaces are normally allowed for 6 per cent. of the maximum seating capacity of all the teaching rooms; this capacity is usually at least 50 per cent. higher than actual attendance figures. On a very restricted site, my right hon. Friend is prepared to consider proposals to provide car spaces for high priority users within or under a building on a scale not exceeding 2 per cent. of that capacity.
