Traffic and parking controls Traffic and parking controls

Traffic and parking controls have a direct impact on road users. Auckland Transport's resolution and approval process ensures the most appropriate controls and restrictions are put in place and can be legally enforced.

Resolution and approval process

Auckland Transport (AT) is required to contribute to an effective, efficient and safe Auckland land transport system. AT bylaws allow the establishment of certain traffic and parking controls by resolutions under the bylaws (this power is delegated to the Traffic Control Committee as resolutions must be made by a group).

AT also has the power under the Local Government Act 1974 and Land Transport Act 1998 to approve a range of other traffic controls. The Traffic Control Committee is delegated to power to pass resolutions for these controls. The Traffic Operations Manager is also delegated the power to approve these types of controls in situations where a project does not involve any of the bylaw powers.

The resolution and approval processes ensure that AT can consider the relevant information in making decisions on traffic and parking controls. Legalising the restrictions and controls ensures that they can be enforced by AT and the NZ Police.


  • Used if any of the controls are covered by bylaws.
  • Passed by the Traffic Control Committee (TCC).


  • Used if none of the controls are covered by bylaws.
  • Approved by the Traffic Operations Manager.

All changes to parking and traffic controls must be approved on a case-by-case basis, using AT's formal decision-making process. Proposed changes must have the support of an AT officer to facilitate process, whether they are associated with a development or as part of a project initiated by AT or Auckland Council.

Report documents

The resolution or approval report contains recommendations to be passed by the TCC or delegated officer and covers the restrictions, controls and physical devices to be installed on the AT roading system.

The report document also outlines the strategic context, background, issues and options for the changes required to a section of road, transport station, building or other piece of land under AT's control.

Report deadline dates

The Traffic Control Committee meets regularly to consider traffic and parking control reports. To ensure your report is considered by the TCC, it must first be reviewed and signed off by various AT officers by way of a review workflow process. You can expect this process to take 2 weeks and it must be commenced by the AT officer of record for the report. The TCC secretary is alerted when the work flow is complete and if this happens before the deadline it will be included in the next TCC agenda.

The agenda closing dates for the TCC meetings in 2020 and 2021 are:

  • 14 December 2020.
