Consultation status: closed 21 August 2017
Proposal reference: BYL-150
We are going to install broken yellow lines (No stopping restrictions) on Hororata Road.
Why the changes are needed
Parked cars at the head of the cul-de-sac are restricting accessibility and the ability to turn and this proposal would help fix these issues.
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.
- Concerns about a reduction of available parking for residents and visitors. We acknowledge that on-street parking is a valuable and shared community resource. Therefore its removal is only carried out where a significant safety or accessibility issue has been identified. Only four on-street car parks are being removed which should not create a parking issue.
- Extend broken yellow lines up to no. 20 Hororata Road as road narrows. Hororata Road is still considered wide enough to safely allow parking on both sides of the road. On-street parking is a valuable and shared community resource therefore its removal is only carried out where a significant safety or accessibility issue has been identified.
- Concerns that Restrictions here will move the issue further along the road. Vehicles parking further up the street do not create a visibility or accessibility hazard.
We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/18 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues.
Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction work.
