We've proposed changes in your area
In December 2019, we proposed to convert 8 unrestricted parking spaces to P60 1-hour parking restrictions on Rishworth Avenue in Stanmore Bay.
These restrictions would operate Monday to Sunday from 8am to 6pm. This proposal responded to requests from local businesses for more available short-term parking for customers. This proposal aims to improve parking turnover and availability.
The proposed changes will proceed to the next stage of detailed planning before being implemented. Thank you to everyone who responded to our proposal and gave us the chance to better understand your community and concerns. A summary of your feedback and our responses to community questions is below.
- Many respondents supported the proposal, noting that the new parking restriction will increase available parking for customers. Thank you for the support. We hope the new restrictions will resolve the current parking concerns.
- Multiple varying requests for additional time restricted parking in the immediate area. Parking is a valuable asset, and restricting too many spaces can negatively impact local businesses. We believe the proposal provides a good parking mix to meet different customer needs.
- Multiple varying requests to amend the proposed time restrictions. During the planning process, other options were considered, including different time restrictions. We chose 60 minute restrictions as we believe it is the best way to suit all the surrounding businesses, by improving the mix of parking. There is also unrestricted parking in the immediate area for those wishing to stay longer than 60 minutes.
- Request for broken yellow lines along the top of the junction of Rishworth and Karepiro. Restricting too many spaces can negatively impact local businesses. Therefore, the removal of parking needs to be justified by significant safety concerns. Cars do not appear to be parking on this intersection in a way which impacts visibility and safety, and so we do not feel that broken yellow lines are appropriate here.
These works are planned for March 2020, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays.
Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
