Taylor Street, Blockhouse Bay – Parking Restrictions Taylor Street, Blockhouse Bay – Parking Restrictions

Proposal status: Closed November 2023

Reference number: RTV-501

Proposal Outcome

After reviewing all of the feedback we received, this project will proceed without changes.


Consider more off-street parking on Taylor Street

Some parts of Taylor Street already have no stopping at all times lines. We wish to keep 58 to 86 unrestricted as on-street parking is a valuable and finite public asset. We need to balance the needs of local residents, visitors, and businesses. Taylor Street is a wide road that allows for parking on both sides of the road whilst allowing two-way traffic flow.

Consider extending the No Stopping at All Times through all of Taylor Street

On-street parking is a valuable and finite public asset. We apply parking controls in areas subject to high levels of on-street parking that balance the needs of local residents, visitors and businesses ahead of the needs of commuters from neighbouring areas.
