Sunnybrae Road, Hillcrest - Mobility spaces and P15 parking Sunnybrae Road, Hillcrest - Mobility spaces and P15 parking

Proposal status: updated 4 April 2019

Reference number: RTV-140

We're proposing changes in your area

In March 2019 we proposed to improve access outside of Sunnybrae Normal School by converting the existing P5 loading zone to two kerbside P180 mobility spaces (at all times) and two P15 parking spaces (Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm).

This would have involved the installation of a small stretch of broken yellow lines to discourage unsafe parking behaviour at the entrance to the slip road.

Why the changes are needed

This is expected to provide a safe environment for the pick-up and drop off of all students, including those with restricted mobility.

Proposal outcome

This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback.

Feedback received

A summary of this feedback and answers to community questions and concerns:

  • This proposal received positive responses from community members and stakeholders who supported the proposed addition of two P180 Mobility Parking spaces (applicable at all times), and P15 restrictions (Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm), along the slip road outside the school.
  • Concerns were raised that parents might use the mobility park for drop off parking or overstay in restricted parks. The mobility parks are reserved for the exclusive use of vehicles displaying a Mobility Parking Permit. A valid Mobility Parking Permit must be displayed at all times in the vehicle while it is parked in a mobility parking space. A consistent zero tolerance approach will apply to the illegal use of mobility parking spaces. Offending vehicles will be ticketed and may be towed.
  • Request to make all parks P15 and make two spaces closer to the school mobility parks. Auckland Transport's proposal includes two mobility spaces in front of the school. The rest of the spaces will be P15 time restricted, as proposed. Auckland Transport parking enforcement will regularly monitor these parking spaces.

Next steps

This work will happen by September 2019 but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will send notices to affected residents prior to construction starting.
