Consultation status: closed 9 October 2017
Proposal reference: BYL-171
Install Broken yellow lines opposite the driveways of 4 Robert Hall Avenue and 6 Robert Hall Avenue.
Why the changes are needed
Residents are experiencing difficulties accessing their properties when commuters park on this street. Installation of broken yellow lines further along the street opposite other driveways helped solve these accessibility issues.
Thank you everyone for your feedback.
The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed with changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
Specific feedback and proposed solution
- Request for on-street parking for residents. It is the responsibility of the tenant to ensure that they have sufficient parking to meet their needs and we would not advise relying on on-street parking as this is a public asset and can be subject to change or removal. The parking spaces removed are minimal and there are enough entrances and exits available for residents. The majority of the western length of Robert Hall Ave is still available for parking.
- Broken yellow lines should be no longer than 8m for each stretch. As mentioned above, we have tried to minimise the removal of parking with only the spaces removed where adequate entrances/exits for residents are needed. We have reduced the length of parking removal and this is reflected in the updated plan of the proposal available for download above.
- Suggestion that the congestion problem is only temporary due to current construction project. The congestion at this location was not considered an issue however parking utilisation is high because of the proximity of this street to the CBD and there are currently no existing timed parking restrictions.
We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/2018 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will notify all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
