The Haryana government has effected major changes in the Haryana Building Code-2017 to tackle parking problems in residential colonies. Now, it will be mandatory for 100 square metre (4 marla) plot owners to have a car parking space for each floor in their new constructions.
While the plot owners between 100 to 250 square metres (4 to 10 marlas) will have to leave one equivalent car space (ECS) for each floor within their premises, those undertaking construction on plots between 250 to 500 square metres (10 marlas to 1 kanal) will have to leave 1.5 ECS.
An ECS consists of a total area of 12.5 square metres with dimensions of 5 metres × 2.5 metres.
A recent order of the Additional Chief Secretary, Town and Country Planning, amending the building code said those constructing new buildings on plot measuring 500 square metres and above will leave 2 ECS of parking space. However, the plots below 100 square metres (below 4 marla) will only leave 0.5 ECS.
According to new building code, the stilt parking would be mandatory for owners going in for construction of third and fourth floor in the hyper potential category (Gurugram-Manesar Urban Complex). For other towns, stilt parking will be must for owners constructing fourth floor.
Meanwhile, BK Sanghi, Panchkula-based developer, termed the amendments as too stringent. “At a time when there is pressure on land in major towns, parking norms need to relaxed at least till the time coronavirus crisis persists,” he asserted.
