FOI 5842-Car Parking Spaces

Date: 09 December 2019 to 09 December 2022

I understand you would  be expected to issue more car park permit than the space you have onsite. But, I believe you might have issued significantly more than you have the space.

I would be grateful if you would let me know how many spaces you have on site and how many onsite parking permit you have issued please.

    I understand you would  be expected to issue more car park permit than the space you have onsite. But, I believe you might have issued significantly more than you have the space.

    I would be grateful if you would let me know how many spaces you have on site and how many onsite parking permit you have issued please.

    The count is flexible as some parking on site is considered ‘temporary’ and cars can fit into other temporary areas on the site.  The current data is:

    635 for visitor

    857 for staff

    219 temporary staff

    400 additional parking at Dockside, Chatham

    Permits are allocated on the basis of a ratio, this ratio is calculated from historic occupancy data taking into account shift patterns, annual leave and sickness, and part time working.  The ratio is 0.4.

    Permits are available for daytime parking, night time and weekends and for staff who work nights or weekends only.  Including all permit types there are 2493 permits issued.
