Proposed changes in your area
We proposed new broken yellow lines on Alcove Place in Totara Heights.
Why the changes were needed
These changes are needed to improve accessibility for residents and visitors to the street. Currently, cars parked along the narrow road or close to the intersection can block access to the cul-de-sac.
The proposal also includes broken yellow lines around the turning head of the cul-de-sac.
This will prevent people from parking on stretches of road that would be too short for a standard vehicle to park on, blocking driveway access and visibility. It will also improve the manoeuvring ability of rubbish collection trucks and emergency service vehicles in the street.
We received mixed community feedback in response to this proposal, and as a result this project will not be proceeding to the next stage of detailed planning. Thank you to everyone who submitted feedback.
If parking issues occur, such as people parking within 6 metres of the intersection or too close to driveways, please call parking enforcement on 09 355 3553 so a parking officer can be dispatched.
