Notes

1. The tables above show only the APMH short-stay parking demand arising at times of peak daytime demand with events taking place at the APMH.

2. The Customer Demand (Adjusted Tesco Estimates) in Table 2 are as per the Parking Analysis prepared by Quentin Armitage.

3. The tables above do not include the shortfall in available long-stay spaces in the APMH.  Observed (7 March at 11.30) peak demand for long-stay spaces in the APMH was 47 spaces.  To this must be added the future daily demand of 38 spaces (as per the relevant planning applications and accepted by the Planning Inspector) from the new developments at Hascombe House/Curry House and from Tesco staff of 20+ spaces, giving a total peak demand for long-stay spaces of 100+ spaces. There are only 71 long-stay spaces in the APMH car park, so there will be a resulting shortfall of 30+ long-stay spaces which, added to the shortfall (even using Tesco’s customer demand estimates) of 39 short-stay spaces at 11.30am, will result in a total shortfall of 70+ spaces.  Grove Road has 46 spaces and the peak observed demand at Grove Road (at 14.30pm on 14 March) was for 20 spaces, leaving only 26 spaces available.  Grove Road clearly does not have enough spaces to absorb the shortfall in spaces in the APMH, which must then result in a large increase in overspill parking in the surrounding streets.  It is also clear that moving the hospital long-stay parking from the APMH would not provide enough parking spaces to meet the shortfall.
