To provide greater parking availability and flexibility, Auckland Transport (AT) is proposing a residential parking zone in Kingsland. The proposal is shown on the map below.
- If a household applies for multiple permits, they can only have a maximum of one permit approved per round of the permit order of priority.
- A round starts at the top of this diagram, considering high priority applicants first and works its way to the bottom, considering low priority applicants last. When permits have been granted to all eligible applicants (no more than one per household) the next round starts. Additional permit applications from a household are considered in these subsequent rounds. This cycle is repeated until all available permits are taken, or there are no applicants left.
- Developments and homes built after the notification of the Proposed Auckland Unitary Plan in September 2013 are not eligible for permits. This is to stop developers passing on the cost of providing parking to rate payers.
- As shown on the map on pages 1 and 2, we are proposing a residential parking zone that encapsulates:
- All property addresses on Kingsland Avenue, First Avenue, Second Avenue, and Third Avenue
- All properties addresses on Fourth Avenue between School Road and Central Road
- Numbers 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, and 24 Central Road.
- Time restrictions of 2-hours (P120), Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm (excluding public holidays) are proposed for the residential parking zone.
- The time restriction will only apply to vehicles that do not have permits or coupons.
- The P120 time restriction will replace all existing parking restrictions within in the residential parking zone, except the existing broken yellow lines, which will remain in place.
- AT will begin enforcing vehicles parked across driveways, including residents vehicles.
- Albert-Eden Local Board asked us to seek feedback to determine if the community wanted a residential parking zone. The proposal was unlikely to proceed if the majority of residents within the zone do not support it.
- We have received multiple requests from this community to create a residential parking zone.
- For most streets within the proposed zone, there is a high level of parking occupancy at peak times.
- To provide greater parking availability and flexibility for residents, business, and visitors. The two-hour time restriction supports parking for business customers and casual residential visitors, while preventing non-resident long-term parking.
- To reduce vehicles driving around looking for parking spaces. Less circling vehicles should reduce vehicle noise, pollution, and improve pedestrian safety.
- To reduce incidences of parked vehicles obstructing driveways, as vehicles do not have to park in marginal spaces.
Project decisions and public feedback report
Due to low levels of support for the proposal, we have decided not to implement the residential parking zone.
