Mt Eden residential parking zone extension Mt Eden residential parking zone extension

To provide greater parking availability and flexibility, Auckland Transport (AT) is proposing to extend the existing residential parking zone in Mt Eden.


Project overview

Auckland Transport is proposing to extend the residential parking zone in Mt Eden to provide greater parking availability and flexibility for residents, businesses and visitors.

The proposal is in response to community feedback requesting additional streets to be included, and due to high occupancy rates of on-street parking in the area.

The Mt Eden residential parking zone extensions include:

  • Time restrictions of two hours (P120), Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm (excluding public holidays and weekends). This is consistent with the restrictions in the existing residential parking zone north of View Road.
  • The time restriction will only apply to vehicles that do not have permits or coupons.
  • Permit and coupon holders from the existing and proposed residential parking zone will be able to park in both the existing and proposed residential parking zones.
  • The P120 time restriction will replace most the existing parking restrictions in the area.

Benefits

  • Provide greater parking availability and flexibility for residents, business and visitors.
  • The two-hour time restriction supports parking for business customers and casual residential visitors, while not allowing for non-resident long-term parking.
  • Reduce congestion from vehicles driving around looking for parking spaces.
  • Less circling vehicles should also improve pedestrian safety in the area.
  • Reduce incidences of parked vehicles obstructing driveways, as vehicles do not have to park in marginal spaces.

Extension areas

There are three residential parking zone extension areas for Mt Eden:


Extension area - Valley Road

Roads and properties included in the southern extension area

Valley Road, Kenyon Avenue, Ewington Avenue (part of), Woodford Avenue, Pentland Avenue, Prospect Terrace, Ashton Road, Conway Road, Avenham Walk, Tarata Street.

About residential parking zones

A residential parking zone is a collection of residential streets upon which a parking restriction is applied. It allows short term parking for visitors, and all-day parking for coupon and permit holders.

Within the residential parking zone all residents and businesses can apply for a parking permit, which will exempt them from the time restrictions. They can also obtain parking coupons that allow visitors to be exempt from the restrictions for a day.

Public feedback & report for the extension area West of Mt Eden Road

We sought public feedback on the project between 14 October and 10 November 2019.

After considering the public feedback we have decided to progress the project through to implementation, subject to the following changes:

  • Changes to the boundary of the RPZ to include additional properties on Mount Eden Road (not Mount Eden Road itself).
  • Changes to the boundaries of the RPZ to include the end of Esplanade Road.

After considering public feedback and completing parking surveys on the streets below, we have also decided to propose a further extension of the RPZ, that includes the following:

  • Percy Street, Hillside Cres North, Hillside Cres South, Batger Road, Rautangi Road, Oaklands Road and some properties on the eastern side of Mount Eden Road (not Mount Eden Road itself).
  • All or part of the following roads: Valley Road, Woodford Road, Kenyon Avenue, Pentland Avenue, Ashton Road, Avenham Walk, Tarata Street, Prospect Terrace and Conway Road.

For more information please read the report on public feedback (PDF 1.22MB, 27 pages) or the Mt Eden Residential Parking Zone Extension Map, which provides an overview of the feedback received, AT's responses to key feedback themes and maps of the final residential parking zone extension and the further extensions mentioned above.

Next steps

  • Auckland Transport will be in touch with residents and local businesses about 6-8 weeks before the opening day of the residential parking zone. The opening day is yet to be confirmed and will be dependent on how the COVID-19 situation progresses, but at this stage we are aiming for late 2020.
  • AT will seek community feedback on the proposed further extension of the RPZ around September 2020.
