Pigeon Mountain Road, Half Moon Bay

Consultation closes 13 May 2014.

Proposed changes to P5 parking time restriction, outside Pakuranga College, 180 Pigeon Mountain Road, Half Moon Bay, Auckland.

Auckland Transport (AT) received requests about Pakuranga College and the surrounding residential area stating that the current P5 time restriction outside the school isn't enough to carry out particular activities. 

The AT Parking Design team visited this site several times and completed a review. The outcome was:

  • The current P5 parking restriction is enough to carry out specific types of activities such as picking up and dropping off students. The hours and days of operation for this activity are 7:30-9:30 am and 2:30-4 pm, Monday to Friday school days. During these times, the occupancy of parked vehicles is 100%.
  • Parking outside these peak hours within the P5 restriction is minimal and underutilised, but unrestricted on-street parking in other sections of the street is full.
  • The current P5 parking restriction from 8 am to 6 pm hinders other activities that need more parking time. The unrestricted on-street parking in this section of the road is fully utilised, so finding unrestricted parking space during school days is difficult. The only parking available is the existing P5 time restricted area, forcing drivers to park and return before the expiry of 5 minutes.
  • Currently, the existing P5 time restriction is unresolved.

AT proposes new times for the current P5 time restriction. The P5 restriction will apply from 7:30-9:30 am and 2:30-4 pm, Monday to Friday, school days only.

With these restrictions in place, AT believe they can either minimise or elimnate the above mentioned parking issues. They will also allow other road users to park their vehicles during non-school days, easinge the current on-street parking availability.

Please see attached plan for details of the proposal (PDF 156 KB)

You can give us your feedback below or if you have any questions about the proposed changes, please call 09 355 3553.

Seaview Terrace, Monaghan Avenue and Carrington Road, Mt Albert

Consultation closes 16 May 2014.

Proposed parking restriction changes on Seaview Terrace, Monaghan Avenue and Carrington Road, Mt Albert

Auckland Transport (AT) received a request to implement some changes to the current P2 and P5 restrictions located on Seaview Terrace, Monaghan Ave and Carrington Road, Mt Albert. The current restrictions are meant for quick pick up and drop off purposes, but some motorist are staying longer than the intended time restrictions.

To help with turn over during peak pick up and drop off times, Auckland Transport proposes the following:

  • A new Pick up and Drop off zone located on Seaview Terrace and Monaghan Avenue. This will replace the current P2 and P5 restrictions. The zone restriction will apply between the hours of 8.15-9am and 2.30-3.30pm school days only. Outside these hours will be unrestricted parking.
  • A new P60 time restriction will replace the existing P5 on Carrington Road.

The proposed parking changes should enable pick up/drop off activities to occur on Seaview and Monaghan Avenue during peak periods, while Carrington road caters for short to medium stay parking.

Please see the plan for details of the proposal (PDF 212KB)

AT seeks your views as an owner or occupier of a local property in this area. 

If you have any questions about the proposed changes, please call 09 355 3553.

Dominion Road and village centres

Consultation closes April 30 2014.

Parking Restriction Changes in Dominion Road and surrounding streets

Auckland Transport (AT) has been working with the Albert-Eden and Puketapapa local boards and the Eden-Valley Business Association on ways to improve parking throughout Dominion Road and the village centres of Eden Valley, Balmoral and Mt Roskill. The existing short-stay parking restrictions of 30 minutes or less do not provide a sufficient amount of time to support the main retail and commercial activities. In addition, the current range of parking restrictions can be confusing and results in an excessive number of parking signs in a relatively small area.

In order to address this issue, AT is proposing to install a 60-minute parking zone (P60) throughout the main village centres. This proposal involves changing the existing on-street parking restrictions, which will reduce the number of signs and different restrictions. The type of signage used to describe those restrictions will change also.

The proposal will reduce the total number of parking signs and should improve how the streetscape looks and feels, reduce footpath clutter, help pedestrian flow and provide a safer walking environment.

Titoki Street, Parnell

Consultation closes: 16 April 2014

Parking Restriction change on Titoki Street, Parnell

Auckland Transport (AT) has received a request to provide parking for school buses outside ACG College, Parnell.

AT has investigated this and can see benefits in supporting this request thereby encouraging students to utilise this service and accordingly reducing the number of private vehicles attending the college at busy times of the day. A restriction 14m in length would accommodate two minibuses.

AT is proposing to install the following restriction:

  • Bus Parking Only applying 8am to 9am and 3pm to 4pm Monday to Friday.
  • Pay and Display applying 9am to 3pm and 4pm to 5pm Monday to Friday (5pm aligns with the proposed time changes for the Newmarket paid parking zone). 

Please see the plan for details of the proposal (PDF 127KB)

AT seeks your input as the owner or occupier of a local property and encourages you to present your views, concerns and ideas to help ensure the final design of the parking restrictions meets the needs of users as much as possible.

If you have any questions about the proposed changes, please call 09 355 3553.

Fowlds Ave, Sandringham

Consultation closes: 17 April 2014

Proposed P30 parking restrictions outside 62 Fowlds Ave, Sandringham

Auckland Transport (AT) has received a request to implement new parking time restrictions outside the property at 62 Fowld’s Ave, Sandringham. We understand all day parking is happening at this location making it difficult for short stay visitors to find nearby parking.

We are currently reviewing whether affected property owners and tenants support this change. The proposal is to install:

  • A new 30-minute (P30) time restriction applicable Monday to Sunday 8am-6pm.

The proposal to time restrict this section of road will allow for some shorter stay parking whilst allowing for longer stay parking to occur further along this road.

Please see the plan for details of the proposal (PDF 240KB)

AT seeks your input as the owner or occupier of a local property and encourages you to present your views, concerns and ideas to help ensure the final design of the parking restrictions meets the needs of users as much as possible.

Provide feedback on the Fowlds Ave proposal by 17 April 2014


Jervois Road, Herne Bay

Consultation closed: 28 March 2014

Auckland Transport received a request to review the existing P5 Loading Zone parking restriction outside of No 85 Jervois Road, Herne Bay. The request notes that short-term customer parking for local businesses is at a premium and that the loading zone is no longer required.

Auckland Transport consulted on a similar proposal in February 2012 and feedback demonstrated at the time that there was continuing demand for the existing on-street loading zone. In light of the recent request and the time that has elapsed since the last consultation AT welcomed the views of affected stakeholders to replace the existing loading zone with the following proposal:

  • P15 applying from 8 am to 6 pm, Monday to Saturday

Please see the plan for details of the proposal (PDF 96KB)

No consultees raised any objection to the proposal there was however a suggestion that the hours of operation be shortened.

AT prefers to retain the standard hours of operation where possible as this is less confusing for customers.  So AT has decided to proceed with the proposal as originally set out.


Sandy Bay, Waiheke Island

Consultation closed: 28 March 2014

Proposed parking restriction change at Sandy Bay, Waiheke Island

In September 2013 Auckland Transport (AT) investigated opportunities to improve parking and parking control in the area around the boat ramp at Sandy Bay, Waiheke Island.

The original proposal focussed on trying to provide dedicated boat trailer parking to improve the situation. Feedback from that consultation process highlighted three issues:

  • That Boat Trailer parking should be excluded from the access road at certain times of the year.
  • There was support for the remainder of this area to be No Parking for all vehicles between the busy times of the year.
  • That No Stopping Controls should be established around the Great Barrier Road and Coromandel Road junction

Auckland Transport has decided to amend its original proposal to the following parking restriction:

  • Parking – This excludes Trailer parking which is not permitted between 24th December to 6th February inclusive and public holidays.
  • No Parking between 24th December to 6th February inclusive and public holidays.
  • No Stopping At All Times on Great Barrier Road and Coromandel Road.

Please see the attached plan for details of the proposal (PDF 188 KB)


Scotland Street, Freemans Bay

Consultation closed: 21 March 2014

Auckland Transport (AT) consulted on a proposal to install a new loading zone on Scotland Street. While sufficient support was anticipated to proceed with the proposal a number of issues were raised which AT wishes to address in this advisory notice.

Two comments were received regarding the location of the proposal and its impact on visibility from the pedestrian crossing. AT discussed issues related to this issue with the relevant AT departments before consulting on the proposal. The advice received was that proposing the loading zone immediately adjacent to the pedestrian crossing would be unacceptable as it would compromise visibility, however, this would not be the case with the location suggested in the proposal.

AT doesn't support the installation of No Stopping At All Times road markings across vehicle entrances as this is a road safety control and The Land Transport (Road user) Rule 2004 clearly states in Para 6.9 that a person in charge of a vehicle should not block a vehicle entrance. The fact that both restrictions will be marked out will help in highlighting that the vehicle entrance is not a parking space. In cases where a vehicle is obstructing a vehicle entrance enforcement should be requested from AT.

AT is aware that the demand for on-street parking in Freemans Bay is very high. There are existing timed parking restrictions in the immediate area ranging from 30 minutes to 120 minutes which should provide short term parking. AT appreciates that there will be an impact from the removal of two 60 minute parking spaces but feels that the provision of a dedicated loading zone will improve traffic flow along Scotland Street.

AT will be proceeding with its proposal to install a loading zone on Scotland Street with the following restriction:

• P5 Loading Zone applying 8am to 6pm Monday to Sunday

AT would like to thank you for your participation in this consultation.

Please see the attached plan for details of the proposal (PDF 108 KB)


The Strand, Takapuna

Consultation closed: 21 March 2014

Proposed parking changes on The Strand, Takapuna - Mobility Parking

Auckland Transport (AT) developed this proposal in response to requests to review the mobility parking spaces outside 2 The Strand, Takapuna.

Of the two mobility spaces in that location, the western most, or first space, has been highlighted as too narrow to be used effectively. AT proposed to modify this restriction by converting one space to P10 parking .The second will remain a P120 mobility space but will be changed to operate at all times.

AT will install two additional P120 at all times mobility spaces immediately to the east of the existing restriction. The new spaces will use a former vehicle crossing to provide a safe and practical addition to the mobility parking inventory in the area. These new spaces offer good access to the footpath and an adjacent access ramp leading to many popular amenities.

Please see the attached plan for details of The Strand proposal (PDF 76 KB)


Jellicoe Street, Auckland Central

Consultation closed: 7 March 2014

Parking restriction change on Jellicoe Street, Auckland Central.

The success of the Wynyard Quarter redevelopment has made it necessary to review the parking restrictions on Jellicoe Street between Halsey Street and Daldy Street. 

AT proposed the following changes to benefit the three areas mentioned above:

  • P5 Loading Zone applying all day every day
  • P5 Loading Zone 8am to 6pm Monday to Sunday / Taxis at all other times
  • Motor Cycles Only applying all day every day
  • P180 Mobility Permit Holders Only applying all day every day
  • No Stopping At All Times

Please see the attached plan for details of the Jellicoe Street proposal (PDF 156 KB).

As the majority of respondents supported the proposal, Auckland Transport (AT) has decided to proceed with the proposal as originally set out.

Concern was expressed that Taxi parking should be after 5pm which the proposal satisfies as the Taxi restriction would start at 6pm. It was also requested that AT provide addition parking for Motorcycles and Scooters.

As this proposal would bring to four the number of motorcycles parking restrictions on this block AT feels that this improves the balance in this area.


Hurstmere Road, Takapuna

Consultation closed: 28 February 2014

Proposed P5 Loading Zone on Hurstmere Road service lane, Takapuna

Auckland Transport (AT) is proposing a change to the Hurstmere Road service lane and wants to get your views.

There are currently No Stopping At All Times parking restrictions along the service lane.

AT recommends that a P5 Loading Zone At All Times is the most appropriate way to manage this service lane and to meet the existing loading demands.

The P5 Loading Zone will be restricted to goods service vehicles and is proposed to be 12 metres in length to provide for two vehicles. The proposal will not affect the existing pedestrian routes across the service lane.

Please see the proposal plan for Hurstmere Road (PDF 266 KB)


Onehunga Mall

Consultation closed: 21 February 2014

Proposed P5 Loading Zone in the service lane behind Onehunga Mall

Auckland Transport (AT) proposed a change to the service lane behind Onehunga Mall and wants to get your views.

AT received complaints from the Onehunga Business Association and local businesses about the service lane.

There are currently no parking restrictions in the service lane. Vehicles parked in the service lane for extended periods of time can make it difficult for adjacent businesses to access their properties.

AT recommended that a P5 Loading Zone at all times is the most appropriate way to manage this service lane.

Please see the proposal plan for Onehunga Mall (PDF 240 KB)

A P5 Loading Zone will still allow the area to be used for loading and unloading but will prohibit leaving a vehicle unattended for long periods of time. The P5 Loading Zone will only apply to the road reserve.

This proposal would create an additional 6 parking spaces, increasing the total number of spaces on the street from 3 to 9.


Bus parking outside 27 Mangere Town Square

Consultation closed: 12 February 2014

Auckland Transport (AT) received a request from Mangere-Otahuhu Local Board to provide a loading zone outside 27 Mangere Town Square to accommodate bus services of Counties Manukau District health Board (CMDHB).

The service is to pick up and drop off patients every hour between 8 am-6 pm, Monday to Saturday. CMDHB is providing this bus service to chronic patients to facilitate integration of social activities such as shopping.

To promote safe parking and facilitate this activity, AT proposed the following:

  • To install a 9 metre Bus parking area to facilitate pick up and drop off type activity.

Please see the proposal plan for 27 Mangere Town Square (PDF 162 KB)

This bus parking restriction would operate from 8 am to 6 pm Monday to Saturday with a maximum time restriction of 15 minutes. All other parking spaces will remain the same.

There were no objections raised on this proposal. The only external respondent which is Mangere Town Centre BID, supporting the proposal. Therefore AT has decided to proceed with the proposal as set out originally.


Ocean View Road, Waiheke Island

Consultation closed: 31 January 2014

Auckland Transport has identified an on street location Ocean View Road, Waiheke Island where it believes the provision of a parking space for a car share vehicle would be beneficial.

Auckland transport proposed to create a single parking space with the following restriction:

  • Car Share Vehicles Only, At All Times. This would apply 24 Hours a day every day.

Please see the proposed plan for Ocean View Road, Waiheke Island (PDF 178 KB)

As no respondents objected to the proposal, AT has decided to proceed with the proposal as originally set out.


Gundry Street and Ophir Street, Newton

Auckland transport has completed a short survey which returned a figure showing a 94% occupancy of parking spaces in this area.

All unoccupied spaces were located in the time restricted parking at the northern end of Gundry Street, no unrestricted spaces were unoccupied. The majority of the respondents supported the proposal to time restrict an additional seven spaces towards the southern end of Gundry Street.

AT feels that this measure will help to improve parking availability for the customers of local businesses and has decided to proceed with the proposal as originally set out.

Please see the proposed plan for Gundry and Ophir Streets, Newton (PDF 170KB)
