Gangdong-gu Office Encourages to Demolish Walls to Have Own Parking Lots

- A project of creating parking lots by removing the old walls and gates of private homes

   - To fund KRW 9 million for one lot per house, with the aim to create 60 lots at 30 locations this year

“Demolish the wall to have your own parking lot.” Gangdong-gu Office takes action to solve parking problems in residential areas.


Gangdong-gu Office (Head: Lee Soo-hee) announced this year's project of creating parking spaces by tearing down the walls or gates of certain houses where there is insufficient parking.


As parking issues have become an increasingly serious social problem, the project that Gangdong-gu Office has been pursuing since 2004 involves improving the parking environment in densely populated residential areas where parking space is limited. The initiative has improved residents' quality of life and reduced parking stress, which has received a great response from residents.


If a parking space is created by removing an old house's wall or gate, Gangdong-gu will fund KRW 9 million for one parking space per household, and an additional KRW 1.5 million for each additional parking space.


Based on the standard parking space, a space of 2.5 x 5 meters is required, and for parallel parking, a space of 2.0 x 6 meters is required for construction. The district plans to create at least 60 parking lots for over 30 locations this year.


Residents can apply for the program anytime throughout the year until the budget is exhausted by contacting the Gangdong-gu Parking Administration Division by phone or in person. Once a construction company is selected through competitive bidding, it will confirm the possibility of creating a parking space on the site applied for and begin construction.


"This is a project that secures parking spaces in residential areas where parking spaces are insufficient and improves the parking convenience of residents," said Hwang Chang-sun, director of the Parking Administration Division at Gangdong-gu Office. "The satisfaction of residents who have secured parking spaces through this project is very high, and we will continue to pursue such projects to improve the quality of life for residents of Gangdong-gu."
