Thank you everyone for your feedback.
The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
Specific feedback and proposed solution
- Suggestion that the lines be extended further around the corner. The proposed length of the restrictions is suitable for the bend on Tweed Street as it will increase visibility sufficiently enabling motorists to manoeuvre around the bend safely. Any extension of this is not justifiable and would further reduce parking spaces.
- Suggestion that lines be placed over road crossings to indicate cars cannot park right up to them. If this issue arises and vehicles are parked right up to driveways, please call AT on 09 355 3553 with the details of the vehicle.
- Request for additional works/changes including the problem of vehicles parking long-term on the road. If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, please provide feedback or report a problem here.
We expect to introduce this work by June 2017, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues. Contractors will issue a 48-hour notice to all residents in the area prior to starting construction work.
