What does “tandem parking” mean?

Tandem parking means that two vehicles can park one behind the other. The parking stalls are longer, providing space for two cars assigned to the same strata unit, with the second car behind the first. Tandem parking arrangements can improve overall site design for Housing Choices projects, by reducing the lot width and site area required to accommodate parking spaces, and to create more space for other needs such as open space or garbage and recycling staging.
