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

Auckland Transport (AT) is proposing to extend the existing residential parking zone in Mt Eden.

Project status: Consultation - feedback closed 10 November 2019. 
Project zone: Central

Project overview

AT is proposing to extend the existing residential parking zone in Mt Eden for the following reasons:

  • We have received multiple requests from this community to create a residential parking zone.
  • Because parking occupancy in the area is regularly above 85% occupancy at peak times.
  • To 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.
  • To reduce congestion from vehicles driving around looking for parking spaces. Less circling vehicles should also improve pedestrian safety in the area.
  • To reduce incidences of parked vehicles obstructing driveways, as vehicles do not have to park in marginal spaces.


  • 14 October 2019 - Consultation opens on residential parking zone extension in Mt Eden.
  • 10 November 2019 - Consultation closes.
  • November to December - Public feedback considered.
  • Mid-December - Public feedback report published.

Project details

The following is proposed for the Mt Eden residential parking zone extension:

  • 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. However, the parking restrictions outlined below will remain in place. Vehicles with residential parking permits or coupons will not be exempted from the existing parking restrictions that will remain if the proposed residential parking zone is implemented.

The proposed extension to the Mt Eden Residential Parking Zone is shown on the map below:

Roads that are included in this proposal

Alderley Road, Bellevue Road, Bourne Street, Carrick Place, Charlton Avenue, Esplanade Road, Horoeka Avenue, Kamahi Street, Leamington Road, Lisnoe Avenue, Lovelock Avenue, Puka Street, Sherbourne Road, Sydenham Road and View Road.

Changes to existing parking restrictions within the proposed residential parking zone

Some of the existing parking restriction within the zone will be retained, these are:

  • View Road:
    • P30, Monday to Sunday, 8am to 6pm (outside 36-40 View Road)
    • No Stopping except Mobile Bus Library, 1pm to 2pm, Friday
  • Sherbourne Road (outside school): No Parking, Pick up and drop off, Monday to Friday, 8:30 to 9:30am, 2:30 to 3:30pm, School days
  • Eden Park event parking controls on Carrick Place, Leamington Road, Kamahi Street, Lisnoe Avenue and Alderley Road. During events at Eden Park, residents on these streets will need to display the Eden Park events permit/coupon in their vehicle. The general residential parking zone permits/coupons are not valid on these streets at these times.

All other existing time limited parking within this zone will be superseded by the P120 time limits.

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 consultation

We wanted your feedback on the proposed changes. Local knowledge will help us decide the final design of the project.

Feedback is now closed on this consultation.

Next steps

We will:

  1. consider your feedback and use it to revise the proposal.
  2. prepare a report that outlines any changes to the proposal and our final decisions. If you provide your contact details, we will notify you when the report is available.
  3. if the residential parking zone goes ahead, send letters to all properties within the zone. This will outline how to apply for parking permits and coupons.
