We're making changes in your area
We are proposing to convert two P60 restricted car parks to a 12 metre P5 Loading Zone (applicable Monday to Sunday, 8am to 6pm) on Normanby Road in Mount Eden.
Why the changes were needed
These changes were needed to improve temporary parking opportunities for couriers and vehicles delivering goods. Currently there is no designated loading zone in the area.
This project will proceed with minor changes to the next stage of detailed planning. After receiving community feedback, we will implement a P5 Loading Zone that operates Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm, and P60 parking that operate Saturday and Sunday, 8am to 6pm. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback.
This proposal received positive responses from community members and stakeholders who supported the installation of a loading zone on Normanby Road, Mount Eden.
A summary of this feedback and answers to community questions and concerns:
- Concern that there is already not enough parking in this area. The remainder of the on-street parking in this section will remain restricted to 60 minutes, which will encourage short term parking availability. In addition to the this, the new loading zone hours have been changed to Monday to Sunday, 8am to 6pm. The loading zone will function as P60 parking on Saturdays and Sundays, between 8am to 6pm.
- Suggestion that couriers use the Wilson Parking that is currently there to load/ unload goods. Wilson Parking is a privately own parking facility, and on this occasion, investigation has shown the need for a loading zone within the public road reserve.
This work will happen between July and December 2019, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays.
Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
