•Potential to reconfigure the existing car parkin (sic)
within a landscaped setting and increase overall parking numbers from 254 to 206 with separate dedicated residential parking
Does this make sense to anyone? Do parking numbers increase or decrease? If they are less where will the new users of the enhanced facilities park?
No. I suspect one of three things
* A typo where "increase" should read "decrease". Possible, but I'm not sure if the Council is so openly anti-car (quiet at the back!) as to make a reduction in car parking provision at a retail development officially deemed to be A Good Thing on a planning document.
* A typo where 206 should be 306
* Some sort of unexplained excising of text, such that it should read "increase overall parking numbers from 254 to 206 with separate dedicated residential parking of X spaces" where X>48, so that 206 + X > 254
It could of course always be some sort of politico-corporate desecration of the language whereby a change from 254 to 206 is in fact deemed to be an "increase", I which case I await the explanation of such.
