We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing to install broken yellow lines at Clare Place in Mount Wellington, including the removal of one on-street car park.
Why the changes are needed
These changes are needed to improve accessibility for emergency vehicles accessing Ellerslie Gardens Lifecare. Currently, these services are having issues accessing the site when cars are parked too close to the driveway.
This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. A summary of the community feedback we received and answers to questions and concerns is below.
- Customer doesn't think that cars parked in this spot would block access to the centre.
When cars are parking too close to, or over the driveway of Ellerslie Life Garden, emergency vehicles are unable to track into the centre, increasing safety concerns. The centre has confirmed emergency vehicles will be accessing their property using the third driveway, which is why we are only proposing restrictions around this drive.
- Concern that there is not enough parking in the street already, especially with visitors of Ellerslie Gardens taking up many of the on-street car parks. They often occupy the entire side of that street.
If visitors are causing safety and operational issues (parking too close or over driveways), please call parking enforcement on 09 355 3553. Clare Place has parking on both sides of the street, which can be utilised by anyone including visitors from Ellerslie Life Garden. Our investigation indicates there is sufficient off-street parking available on Clare Place for residents.
This work will happen before July 2019, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting
