12.1 Eligibility for Business Permits and Residents' Parking Permits within Bath Zones 17 and 18, Peasedown St John, and future new zones, will be offset against the availability of any off-street parking at the property. If there is space to park your vehicle on your property, then we will reduce the number of on-street permits you can purchase.
12.2 An off-street parking space is defined as any of the following:
- Private parking within the curtilage (inside the boundaries) of the property
- Garages or other private off-street space, such as a driveway within 200m walking distance
12.3 For the purpose of off-street parking space, a garage is defined as a building designed to accommodate a parked motor vehicle, and with a minimum internal dimensions of 5m long and 2.5m wide (wall-to-wall). Any multiples of this space will count as multiple parking spaces. Any garage that measures smaller than the minimum dimensions will not be classed as an off-street parking place.
12.4 A driveway is defined as an area of hardstanding (concrete or similar surface) accessible from the road, and designed to accommodate a parked motor vehicle, with minimum dimensions of 5m wide and 2.5m wide.
