    32 rental units, only 25 vehicle parking spaces? Where are the other renters and guests going to park? The street parking is already full without this rental building. Look at the car parking situation across the street where a relatively new rental building already went up - no space to park. That's just not right.

    The City has policies which provide for reduced parking requirements for buildings with good access to transit and those which provide Transportation Demand Management (TDM) measures that support walking, cycling and transit usage. These policies are intended to allow for a market-based provision of parking in new buildings which also support improved housing affordability. The subject development is electing to meet the minimum requirements of the City’s Parking Bylaw by providing of a TDM plan. With a TDM plan, the site is eligible for up to 60% reductions to their vehicle parking requirements.

    The Metro Vancouver Regional Parking Study (most recently updated in 2018) summarizes parking space usage across the region for different housing tenures:

    1. For both rental and strata buildings, the study found that  apartment parking supply exceeds use across the region
    2. Oversupply estimate of 42% in strata buildings and 35% in market rental buildings
    3. Apartment parking supply is lower for buildings closer to frequent transit network
    4. Market rental housing near transit has parking utilization ranging from 0.35-0.72 vehicles per dwelling unit compared to 0.99 for sites further from frequent transit
    5. Transit use is generally higher where apartment parking use is lower, especially for rental buildings
