Consultation status: closed 1 December 2016
We are looking to extend the current No stopping at all times restrictions (broken yellow lines) on Beverley Road in Whangaparaoa.
Why the changes are required
We have listened to concerns from the public regarding buses and other vehicles having restricted access on Beverly Road in Whangaparaoa.
After we carried out site visits which have confirmed these issues, we are proposing the No stopping at all times restrictions to be extended to improve vehicle accessibility.

Thank you everyone for your feedback.
The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing the feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
Specific feedback and proposed solution
- Question whether the Broken Yellow Lines could be extended to outside 4 Beverley Road and requests to extend the broken yellow lines to outside 2B Beverley Road. Some on street parking is necessary to meet parking demand in the area and to promote a slower speed environment. The extent of the proposed restrictions is sufficient to improve accessibility along this road. Please note, parking within a meter of a driveway is already illegal and can be enforced by calling parking enforcement on (09) 355 3553 if motorists are parking in these areas.
- Request to add 2 speed bumps near No. 4 and No. 14 Beverley Rd. There is not enough evidence to support speed humps at this stage as sufficient on-street parking will still be available to provide a slow speed environment. However, we can monitor this situation after the installation of the broken yellow lines has been completed.
- Suggestion that the road be widened instead. The cost of widening the road is not cost-effective for these types of concerns.
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.
