Kingdon St, Newmarket - Parking changes

Consultation status: closed 23 June 2017

We have identified an on street location on Kingdon Street, Newmarket where we believe the provision of a parking space for a car share vehicle would be beneficial.

This proposal will convert a single general paid parking space into a parking space with the following restriction:

  • Shared vehicles only, at all times. This would apply 24 Hours a day, every day.

The existing P5 Loading Zone and No stopping at all times controls will remain unchanged.

Why the changes are needed

We are actively supporting the Car Share Initiative currently operating in Auckland as it is in line with a number of our goals:

  • Reduce car dependency and improve community health by providing infrastructure and services for walking, cycling and ride sharing.
  • Deliver an effective and efficient transport system that enables Aucklanders to make smarter transport choices.

The concept of car share involves the provision of cars in select locations that can be booked through a website or phone and pay per hour. This has proven beneficial for inner city residents and businesses that don’t necessarily own a car but may find one useful from time to time.
