Arlose Place, Massey - no stopping at all times restrictions

Consultation status: closed 26 August 2016

AT proposed to install new No stopping at all times (NSAAT) restrictions on Arlose Place in Massey.

In particular, we proposed:

  • Installing broken yellow lines in the corner of Arlose Place at its intersection with Lazurite Drive, extending over the pram crossing.
  • Installing broken yellow lines at the cul-de-sac end of Arlose Place.

Why changes are needed

The broken yellow lines will prevent cars from parking too close to the traffic island and over the pram crossings. The broken yellow lines at the cul-de-sac will provide enough space for drivers to turn around. 

Feedback results

We received mixed feedback for this proposal. As a result of the feedback, the proposal will proceed, without changes, to the next stage of detailed planning. 

We expect to commence this work by June 2017, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues.

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

Specific feedback

1. Can NSAAT restrictions also be placed on Lazurite Drive?

Roads are considered "narrow" if they are less than 6.5, wide. Lazurite Drive is 7.5m wide, which is adequate for parked vehicles to share the road with drivers. There is also a need to maintain a balance between reasonable public access and parking demand. For these reasons, we are not proposing a further NSAAT restriction on Lazurite Drive at this stage.

2. The NSAAT restrictions at the cul-de-sac are not necessary, as vehicles have no difficulty turning.

Larger vehicles such as rubbish trucks have found it difficult to turn in this cul-de-sac while vehicles are parked. The NSAAT restriction at the cul-de-sac will improve acess for larger vehicles.

3. Can NSAAT restrictions be added between 5 and 13 Arlose Place, as cars are often parked here?

Parking within 1m of a driveway is illegal. If illegal parking at this part of Arlose Place remains a problem, please contact us with vehicle details and request a parking officer visit the site. 

4. Can the grass verge on Lazurite Drive be replaced with angle parking?

Installing angle parking at this location is cost-prohibitive and cannot be justified.

5. Can 'Residents only' parking be installed?

Residential Parking Schemes are used in older suburbs where many properties do not have off-street parking. The availability of street parking in Arlose Place is considered adequate for residential parking and a residential parking scheme will not be applied.
