We've proposed changes in your area
In October 2019, we proposed to extend the No stopping at all times parking restrictions on Willerton Avenue in New Lynn.
Why the changes are needed
Our proposal responded to a request from local residents to address issues with parked vehicles limiting access to the end of the cul-de-sac. These parking changes are expected to improve access for all cars, especially for emergency vehicles and rubbish trucks.
This proposal will proceed with minor changes to the next stage of detailed planning. At the request of the majority of residents on Willerton Avenue, we will no longer be extending the No stopping at all times to cover the two parking spaces in front of number 84 Willerton Avenue.
Thank you to everyone who responded to our proposal and gave us the chance to better understand your community and concerns. A summary of your feedback and our responses to community questions is below.
- The majority of respondents were supportive of this proposal, noting that the parking restrictions would improve access to the end of the cul-de-sac.
Thank you for your support. We hope that these changes will improve access for cars, rubbish trucks and emergency vehicles.
- Request to extend the No stopping at all times further along the road on one side to where it intersects with Pamela Place, where the road is especially narrow.
Our measurements show that Willerton Avenue is wide enough to accommodate parked vehicles on both sides. It is acceptable for this street to operate as a one-way street since it encourages lower speeds, and is common to many local roads in Auckland.
These works are planned between February-May 2020, but we will let you know if there are further changes or delays. Our contractors will send notices to affected residents 48-hours prior to construction starting.
