We are proposing to install broken yellow lines at the end of Bourne Street in Mount Eden.
Vehicles parking at the turning head of this road are causing operational issues for road users trying to manoeuvre here.
Thank you everyone for your feedback.
The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
Specific feedback and proposed solution
- Requests that the broken yellow lines be extended to number 3A on the western side of Bourne Street to prevent cars blocking driveways and between numbers 2A, 2B, 4 and 6 to prevent cars from blocking access ways on the eastern side of the street. Our proposal seeks to minimise parking loss while ensuring that vehicles have enough manoeuvrability to turn around at the end of Bourne Street. These requests will therefore not be incorporated in our final plans. When cars are parked illegally across driveways and access ways, we encourage residents to contact our parking enforcement team on (09) 355 3553.
- Concern for the loss of on-street parking for residents, visitors and trades people including reports that commuters are creating parking congestion. We appreciate the concern regarding the loss of one on-street car park as a consequence of this proposal. However, the implementation of parking restrictions at the end of Bourne St is crucial to providing vehicles with enough space to turn and maintain the operational use of this road.
- Requests for parking time restrictions and a residents only parking scheme to address parking loss and commuter parking congestion. These requests have been forwarded to the appropriate team here, who will investigate these options and provide an individual response.
We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/2018 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will notify all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
