Parking Calculation Tool for Vehicles and Bicycles

Parking Calculation Tool for Vehicles and Bicycles

Parking requirements are often the focus of discussion for many development applications. Parking implications can affect both land availability and overall project costs. Parking requirements in Comox are different for lands located within Downtown and outside of Downtown. Recognizing that parking requirements are a key part of processing an application, the Planning Department has created tools to aid with these calculations. See below for links to download the applicable parking calculator.

The Zoning Bylaw lists different requirements for vehicle parking for different permitted uses in section 6.0 of the bylaw. In section 7.0, the bylaw specifies required bicycle parking in Downtown Comox and recommended bicycle parking Outside Downtown Comox. For lands located outside of Downtown, if the recommended minimum number of bicycle parking spaces is provided, there is an opportunity for a reduction in vehicle parking spaces. The tools also cover the requirements for accessible parking spaces and loading spaces.

How Does the Parking Calculation Tool Work?

Both Parking Calculators are Excel spreadsheets and are broken down into easy steps. See below for a link to the Comox Parking Calculator User's Guide. The parking calculation tool prints on letter-size paper and can be included as part of an application submission.

These Calculators are available for convenience purposes only and should not be used for legal or interpretive purposes without references to Town of Comox, Zoning Bylaw and amending bylaws.
