Consultation status: closed 27 October 2016
We have asked for feedback on a proposal to add No Stopping at All Times restrictions (broken yellow lines) on Bright Street in Eden Terrace.
At present, vehicles parked on Bright Street and Aitken Terrace block access for rubbish trucks. Adding broken yellow lines will allow space for rubbish truck drivers to drive safely through the bend.
Four parking spaces will remain to minimise the loss of parking for residents.

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
- Concern about removal of parking in a street where many residents experience issues finding a parking space, because non-residents leave their cars there all day. We have to remove parking to ensure there is access for emergency services, rubbish collectors and larger vehicles.
- Request to limit parking restrictions to business hours only. Accessibility for emergency vehicles, rubbish collectors and large vehicles must be maintained at all times.
- Request for residents only parking scheme. We have now referred this to our Parking Design department for consideration. If upon assessment this is feasible, they will consult with local residents in the near future.
- Request to limit the Broken yellow lines to the lower, narrowest part of the proposal (on Bright Street only, with no restrictions on Aitken Terrace).
The No stopping at all times restrictions have been proposed in locations that will maximise parking while still allowing larger vehicles such as rubbish truck to pass safely.
- Suggestion that the issue with garbage trucks can be helped by moving garbage bins/containers on the Aitken Terrace portion to a different spot. Moving the rubbish bins will not solve the accessibility issue as the rubbish trucks serve other streets such as Bright Street and Vailima Way.
- Will a No Parking sign pole be placed outside the driveway of 4A/4B Aitken Terrace? There will be no signs added as the No stopping at all times restrictions will be road marking in the form of yellow lines.
- Request for additional works including a request to extend the Broken yellow lines further up into Aitken Terrace. If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, go here to provide feedback or report a problem.
We expect to introduce this work by June 2017, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction work.
