Westmoreland Street West, Grey Lynn – Paid Parking Westmoreland Street West, Grey Lynn – Paid Parking

Proposal status: Closed

Reference number: RTV-478

Proposal outcome

In June 2023, we proposed changes to improve parking availability along Westmoreland Street West.  

In our experience paid parking is the best way to achieve availability while still allowing the flexibility that time restrictions do not.

For this reason, after reviewing all the feedback we received, we are proceeding with the changes as proposed.  

What happens next

We anticipate paid parking to be introduced in March/April 2024.

We're proposing improvements in your area

Aucklanders have told us that moving around our city safely and easily is important to them. We are proposing some improvements to your area.

In response to community requests, we’re proposing to paint broken yellow lines and introduce paid parking from Monday to Saturday, 8am to 6pm for $1 per hour for the first 2 hours, and then $4 for every additional hour.

This project aims to improve parking availability in a high demand area. These changes would:

  • Improve parking availability for people visiting the shops.
  • Offer parking flexibility – people can pay for the time they need without limits.
  • Reduce congestion from people looking for a place to park, which will also improve pedestrian safety.
  • Increase the number of safe, easily accessible, legal parking spaces.

We would like to hear your thoughts about:

  • The proposed cost of parking.
  • The proposed days and times the paid parking restriction will apply.
  • Any other local knowledge about how people already park on Westmoreland Street West.

What happens next

  • We’ll consider all the feedback we receive, and then decide the best way to move forward.
  • We’ll post the outcome of this proposal and a summary of community feedback on this webpage.
  • We can email you the proposal outcome as soon as it’s ready – just select that option when you fill in the survey.
