We're proposing improvements in your area

As part of our work to keep Aucklanders moving, we are proposing to introduce paid parking restrictions on sections of Howe Street, Hopetoun Street and Hereford Street.

We are proposing to:

  • Replace the existing P120 At Other Time restriction with a paid parking restriction on Howe Street. The tariff will be $3 per hour for the first 2 hours and $6 per hour after that.
  • Introduce a P10 parking restriction on highlighted areas of Howe Street, this will be applicable from 8.30am to 9.30am and 2.30pm to 3.30pm Monday to Friday.
  • Introduce a bus parking restriction on highlighted areas of Howe Street, this will be applicable from 8.30am to 9.30am and 2.30pm to 3.30pm Monday to Friday. All other times it will be paid parking.
  • Introduce a paid parking restriction from property 8 to 19 Hopetoun Street. The tariff will be $1 per hour for the first 2 hours and $4 per hour after that.
  • Introduce a paid parking restriction from property 7 to 15 Hereford Street and introduce a P180 Mobility Parking restriction at 531 Hereford Street.

How this will benefit your neighbourhood

Auckland Transport would like to work with you to improve parking in your neighbourhood. These changes will increase the availability of parking spaces on Howe Steet, Hopetoun Street and Hereford Street.

One side of Howe Street is currently paid parking only, and the other side is part of the Residential Parking Zone. In the middle there are various parking restrictions, so in order to simplify restrictions and reduce sign clutter we are proposing to make the paid parking restriction clear across Howe Street. The existing bus stops, bus parking spaces and P10 spaces will remain the same.

Hopetoun Street and Hereford Street are currently unrestricted and are used by all day parkers. In order to manage parking demand and increase the availability of parking for everyone we are proposing to introduce paid parking restrictions on these streets. These changes will also increase the availability of parking for people visiting Karangahape Road, as there has been a significant loss of parking on Karangahape Road as a result of recent developments.
