Design of new streets and parking

How are planning schemes influenced by new streets and parking design standards?

The highway and development management team assesses proposals ranging from single dwellings to large residential developments, hospitals to industrial estates, in fact, any development proposal that has highway implications. The assessment includes proposed development street layouts and how they are designed i.e. widths, construction specification, access and egress proposals and junction design.

Parking of vehicles is one of the main aspects of any layout/design and proposals are assessed to ensure this element meets with council policies and national guidance.

The team provides advice on highway matters relating to pre-application
discussions
and planning applications.

The team does not take responsibility for the maintenance or repair of the public highway infrastructure.

Is there any guidance available on new street and parking design?

National guidance relating to new street design and parking is available from the
Department for Transport website:

Department for Transport - Manual for Streets (external website)

A new East Riding of Yorkshire Council Parking and Layout Guide is being formulated. The guide will relate to new residential/commercial/retail development proposals and include how much parking provision will be required for each type of development. This is an important detail as East Riding of Yorkshire is mainly rural in area and cars are the most common form of transport. The guide will be available in the near future and posted on the website.

What is involved in the adoption of streets?

New streets

When new developments are given planning permission, an application for 'construction approval' can be made, which when granted, ensures the proposed highway infrastructure (streets) are to be constructed to this council's specification. Details of what is required in the application are contained in the following document:

Construction details (pdf 55.3kb opens in new window)

Once construction approval has been given the developer is provided with 'section 38' application forms. These forms, along with layout plans comprise a section 38 agreement which is a voluntary agreement between the developer and the council. This agreement enables the highway infrastructure (streets) to be eligible for adoption as publicly maintained, once the maintenance period (1 year after completion) has elapsed, and subject to all works being satisfactorily completed in accordance with the agreed specifications.

Existing streets

The council, as highway authority, can adopt streets under section 228 of the Highways Act 1980. Generally section 228 relates to older streets that either do not have a section 38 agreement or have never been publicly maintained.

If you wish to pursue an adoption under this procedure please get in touch:
