We're proposing changes in your area
We are proposing to install a loading bay on Dominion Road in Mount Eden. This proposal will result in the removal of two P30 car park spaces.
Why the changes are needed
The proposal is expected to improve road safety by providing businesses short term parking for deliveries.
Currently, delivery vehicles attempting to unload are causing safety issues, such as double parking and potential collisions.
Following significant concerns raised during the consultation process, regarding access and parking scarcity, this project will not be proceeding to the next stage of detailed planning.
Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback, a summary of this feedback is below.
- Multiple respondents noted that the bus lane project and double decker bus project had already removed nearby parking spaces.
- The respondent stated that the scarcity would be worsened by the intensive development on the other side of Dominion Road.
- Multiple business owners raised concerns that customers would not be able to access their businesses easily. They raised concerns around business sustainability.
- Multiple business owners stated that the proposal would penalise customers with limited mobility.
