Glen Esk Place, Remuera - No stopping at all times restrictions

Consultation status: closed 13 April 2017

We are proposing to install No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) on Glen Esk Place in Remuera.

Why the changes are needed

A resident has experienced access difficulties at the end of this street and the parking design team have observed vehicles parking at the end of the cul de sac which is prohibited.

Feedback results

The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. 

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/18 financial year (starting in July 2017), subject to any further design channels or funding issues. 

Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction.

Specific feedback

Add further broken yellow lines to other locations in the area.

We received suggestions for adding further broken yellow lines to locations including:

  • One side of Glen Esk Place.
  • Outside 9 Glen Esk Place.
  • Outside 7 Glen Esk Place.
  • Between The Grange and 6A Glen Esk Place.
  • The southern end of Glen Esk Place.

We initially assessed the feasibility of adding broken yellow lines along one side of the road, but found that this would be excessive. Glen Esk Place is sufficiently wide enough for vehicles to park on both sides of the road and we did not observe any visibility, access or safety issues. 

Add time restricted parking between 9am and 5pm Monday to Friday.

Time-restricted parking is generally only used where there is a high parking demand - such as near retail centres or where there is high parking turnover. Time-restricted parking is not used on local roads that are primarily residential.

Concern that local businesses are encouraging workers to park on this street.

The road is a public one, available to all road users, including those that work in local businesses.

There is no issue with parking on this part of the street or at weekends.

Parking officers have observed drivers parking at the turning head, which is illegal. The proposal formalises the parking restriction to make it clear for all drivers.
