Proposal status: Closed
Reference number: RTV-403
In February 2022, we proposed changes to introduce a P60 parking restriction outside of the block of shops between 1 to 19 Ellis Avenue, Mount Roskill. These changes are in response to community requests to improve the availability and turnover of parking spaces at the block of shops on Ellis Avenue.
After reviewing all the feedback, we are proceeding with the work as proposed. These works will help support our Vision Zero goal.
What happens next
We anticipate the changes will be constructed in May 2022.
Thank you for helping us make better decisions for your neighbourhood, informed by your local knowledge. This proposal received almost full support from respondents. Those supporting the project said that the proposed time restrictions would increase the turnover of available parking spaces at the shops for customers, which one respondent noted was an on-going issue.
Here is a summary of additional comments and queries we received:
- Reduce the parking time limit to P30 to further increase parking availability for customers visiting these businesses. P60 is a good start, but would like to see P30 in the future to reflect the time people will spend at these businesses.
We appreciate your feedback and understand that P30 may suit some customers or businesses. However, we propose parking time restrictions based on the needs of the majority of businesses operating in the area. P60 restrictions provide ample time for most customers to complete their visit, even when they intend to visit multiple businesses in one trip.
- The proposed parking restrictions will not leave enough time for customers of the Hair and Beauty Salon, as some clients require between 2-3 hours for appointments.
We appreciate that certain customers or businesses might need longer visits. Unrestricted parking is available on Ellis Avenue or Subritzky Avenue for customers that need more than 60 minutes.
- Suggestion for the parking restrictions to be P60 from Monday to Saturday, 10am to 6pm.
The standard hours for parking restrictions in New Zealand are from 8am to 6pm, Monday to Sunday. We would like to apply the same operating hours to address the parking issues outside this shopping area.
- Request for AT to solve the issue of customers of these businesses parking on the opposite side of Ellis Avenue, in front of the houses. There have been issues with customers parking here and blocking residential driveways.
If a vehicle is parked across your driveway, you can call the AT Contact Centre on 09 355 3553 and ask for parking enforcement. Vehicles that are parked across a driveway can be enforced by our Compliance Parking Officers.
- This proposal is not needed, as parking availability is adequate.
This proposal is in response to community requests for a parking time restriction to be introduced in front of the block of shops from 1 to 19 Ellis Avenue, to improve overall parking availability and turnover for customer use.
