Why the changes are needed

Our investigations show that vehicles parked at this location can cause obstruction for vehicles coming in and out of the street. Installation of broken yellow lines will eliminate existing access issues, particularly for emergency services and garbage collection trucks.


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.

Specific feedback

  • Requests to install additional broken yellow lines around the intersection of Sunnydale Place and Fields Parade. Our observations did not identify parking in the vicinity of the intersection as a recurring issue. Parking within 6 metres of an intersection is illegal and therefore enforceable. If you observe this, please contact AT Enforcement on (09) 355 3553.
  • Request to install additional broken yellow lines around the entrance to the shared driveway of 2 Sunnydale Place. Due to its proximity to the parking bay, we believe that there is sufficient space on either side of the shared driveway for vehicles to enter and exit. As such, we are unable to consider broken yellow lines at the suggested location.
  • Requests to install additional broken yellow lines on the other side of the road directly opposite the proposed broken yellow lines. Our surveys indicate that Sunnydale Place is wide enough to accommodate on-street parking along one side of the road while maintaining visibility and access for through traffic. As traffic volumes and speeds at this location are relatively low, we are unable to consider further broken yellow lines along the opposite side of Sunnydale Place.

Next steps

We expect to introduce this work between July 2018 and June 2019, subject to further changes in design or funding issues.

Contractors will issue 48-hour notices to all affected residents prior to construction work.
