|Credits||Answer||Select a single answer|
|0||A||Question not answered|
|1||C||Service delivery routes and maneuvering areas are independent from parking areas, pedestrian and cyclist routes, but access points are not independent|
|Criterion||Assessment criteria||Applicable answer|
|1||If the building does not have any external areas and internal access is directly from the public highway/footpath, then the building assessed is compliant.||D|
Small scale deliveries: Where the asset only accepts deliveries on-site from small delivery vehicles (including cars or small vans up to 6 metres in length), and does not require deliveries from larger delivery vehicles, then the credits can still be awarded if the following points have been met:
|3||Car access points and routes do not need to be independent from cyclist and pedestrian access points and routes.||D|
|Asset type specific|
Internal maneuvering areas
Where internal maneuvering areas are present and are also used for pedestrian and cycle access, then these must also have independent routes.
|-||The evidence below is not exhaustive, please also refer to the ‘BREEAM evidential requirements’ section in the scope of the Guidance for appropriate evidence types which can be used to demonstrate compliance.|
|All||Copy of site map indicating location of service delivery areas in relation to other areas to indicate that these are separate.|
|All||Photographic evidence of the service delivery areas and safe pedestrian route(s).|
