Proposal status: Feedback open until 23 June 2023
Reference number: RTV-485
We're proposing improvements in your area
Residents and the New World supermarket have told us it’s difficult to find a parking space in the Wallace Road carpark in Papatoetoe. In response, we’re proposing to install parking time restrictions and are seeking feedback on whether the proposed time restrictions would be suitable or if we need to change them.
We are proposing to:
- Introduce P5 and P90 restrictions to the car parks near New World, north of Stadium Lane. These restrictions would apply from 8am until 6pm, Monday to Sunday.
- Introduce P120 restrictions to the car parks west of the playground. These restrictions would apply from 8am until 6pm, Monday to Sunday.
- Introduce P180 restrictions to all existing mobility parking spaces. These restrictions will apply at all times.
- Paint broken yellow lines (no stopping at all times) at the top of the carpark.
No changes will be made to the parking spaces with existing P120 restrictions along Stadium Lane.
This project aims to improve parking availability.
Introducing a mix of different time restrictions in the carpark mean there would be parking available for people needing short and long stay parking. The proposed parking restrictions would make it easier for customers and visitors to find parking, whether they need to pop into the shops for a quick visit or wander around the town centre for a longer trip.
