Why the changes are needed

Our observations show that on-street parking at this location frequently limits access to the driveways of 3 and 5 Tait Place, particularly for long-haul trucks and other large vehicles. This proposal aims to reduce access issues along Tait Place.

Feedback results

The proposal received mixed feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will not proceed.

Specific feedback

  • Concern that vehicles frequently double park around the cul-de-sac on Tait Place and pose maneuverability issues for trucks. Our investigations indicate that the cul-de-sac is large enough to facilitate turning for trucks. However, double parking is prohibited and we recommend regularly reporting these infringements to our parking enforcement call centre on 09 355 3553, which operates 24 hours, 7 days a week.

  • Request to clarify road markings around all driveways along Tait Place. As the demand for on-street parking at this location is relatively high, we are unable to consider additional broken yellow lines at this stage.

  • Query as to how the proposal was initiated. The proposal was originally initiated in response to a customer request.

  • Request to install broken yellow lines at the corner of Tait Place and Cowley Place. The road corridor at this location is relatively wide and parking issues were not observed directly around the intersection of Tait Place and Cowley Place. As such, we believe that there is sufficient space for vehicles to safely turn into and out of Tait Place.

  • Additional concerns regarding the proposal:

    • Concerns over the limited availability of on-street parking at this location.

    • Suggestion that the proposal is not a good use of ratepayer funds.

Thank you for providing your feedback on this proposal. As a result of comments received during the public feedback period, the proposal to install broken yellow lines on Tait Place will no longer proceed.
