We're proposing changes in your area
In May 2019, we proposed to install no stopping at all times (broken yellow lines) parking restrictions on several sections of Zara Court in Windsor Place. This would involve the removal of approximately 10 parking spots.
Why the changes are needed
These changes are needed to improve road safety and accessibility by removing the ability of motorists to park on narrow sections of the road.
This project will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback. A summary of this feedback and answers to community questions and concerns is below.
- This proposal received positive responses from community members and stakeholders who supported improving road safety on Zara Court, Windsor Park.
- Concerns were raised regarding the effect this proposal will have on resident parking options.
Over the last few months, AT has received several complaints about parked vehicles causing difficulties for large vehicles accessing Zara Court. The proposed parking restrictions aim to mitigate this issue. Whilst our proposal aims to minimise the loss of on-street parking, these restrictions are still required to ensure adequate access for large vehicles, including emergency services, using Zara Court.
- Requests were made to introduce additional broken yellow lines at a variety of spots along Zara Court in order to prevent parked cars blocking the use of the road.
This proposal aims to minimize the removal of on-street parking whilst ensuring there is sufficient space for turning vehicles to access Zara Court. It is intended to address the sections of Zara Court where parking on both or one side of the road prevents the access of large cars and emergency services. Our measurements show that this current design will leave sufficient space for vehicles to pass through these narrow sections of Zara Court. These extensions will therefore not be incorporated in our final plan.
- A request was made for parking wardens to frequently monitor and enforce the current and any future parking restrictions on Zara Court.
The best way for AT to monitor this situation is for infringements to be reported to our parking enforcement call centre, which operates 24 hours, 7 days a week: 09 355 3553.
This work will happen between August and November 2019, 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.
