For public parking areas in Australia how many bays need to be allocated for disabled access?
The number of disabled bays that need to be allocated in a public parking area in Australia depends on the size of the car park and the number of parking spaces provided.
According to the Australian Standard AS 2890.6-2009 Parking facilities Part 6: Off-street parking for people with disabilities, the minimum number of designated accessible car parking spaces required for a public car park is based on the total number of car parking spaces in the car park, as follows:
Based on this standard, if a public parking area in Australia has 100 car parking spaces, at least one accessible car parking space must be provided. However, it's worth noting that this is only the minimum requirement, and car park operators may choose to provide more accessible car parking spaces if they wish to improve accessibility and accommodate the needs of their customers.
