Proposal reference: RTV-074
We are are introducing P60 parking restrictions from outside 2 Captain Scott Road, extending 30 metres north towards West Coast Road, effective between 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday, as well as a P5 Loading Zone at all times.
Why the changes are needed
The restrictions were previously in place, but a redevelopment project in the area incorrectly removed the signs enforcing them.
As a result, commuters have been using the parking spaces on Captain Scott Road to access the nearby train station, meaning local businesses no longer have easily accessible parking for their customers.
The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.
- Implement 2 loading zones and 6 x 60 minute parking spaces. The proposal is only for one 10m long loading zone. There is only enough space adjacent for five car parks.
- People using these spaces are mainly staff members, not commuters. We received information from nearby businesses that it was mainly commuters, plus some workers, parking in this area. This restriction and number of car parks aim to support business activity in the area.
We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/18 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues.
Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction work.
