Parking in New Lynn Parking in New Lynn

Managing parking effectively is vital to achieving the intensive and vibrant residential and commercial developments in New Lynn.

In November 2012, Auckland Transport reviewed parking in and around the New Lynn town centre. The goals were to promote the efficient use of available parking, contribute to the town centre’s economic growth and vitality, and support sustainable transport options and retail activity by prioritising short-stay parking. To achieve this, AT proposed the following:

  • Great North Road (between Totara Ave and Portage Road) - new P60 parking zone, replacing existing restrictions, with the exception of bus stops, loading zones, clearways and no stopping restrictions (broken yellow lines).
  • Great North Road (between Totara Ave and Memorial Drive) – new tidal parking during off peak times.
  • Memorial Drive – new taxi stand and P5 loading zone, outside the new McCrae Way medical building.
  • McCrae Way – new shared zone, with new P5 loading zone restrictions within the shared zone.
  • McCrae Way – north and south on-street car park will have a new P60 standard restriction.
  • Totara Ave - new standard P120 restriction in the community centre car park.
  • Mobility parking - new standard P180 parking restriction.
  • New car park building – long term paid parking provided.

Businesses, property owners and tenants were asked for their views on these proposals, and once this feedback was incorporated, a guide to parking in New Lynn was released. This guide is also available at the library, community centre and at many of the businesses in the area.
