For projects with a UA greater than 50,000m2, teams are able to vary the two relevant percentage benchmarks, as long as the total percentage remains 10%, and neither of the benchmarks are less than 2% - as per the example below:
Acceptable option:
 - A minimum of 8% of all parking spaces are dedicated solely for use by car-pool vehicles, car share vehicles, hybrid or other alternative fuel vehicles.
 - A minimum of 2% or 5 parking spaces (whichever is the greater) are designed and labelled for mopeds, scooters and/or motorbikes
Unacceptable option:
- A minimum of 9% of all parking spaces are dedicated solely for use by car-pool vehicles, car share vehicles, hybrid or other alternative fuel vehicles.
- A minimum of 1% or 5 parking spaces (whichever is the greater) are designed and labelled for mopeds, scooters and/or motorbikes.

With reference to the statement on page 195 that states that preferred parking spaces “…must be clearly signposted and marked with a separate colour from other spots…”, note that the requirement for colour markings apply only if the spots are signposted so that it is clear which parking spaces the signposting applies to. If preferred parking bay markings are provided in the actual parking bays, then these markings need not be in a separate colour to other spots as it is clear which parking spots are marked as preferred.
