After considering public feedback Auckland Transport (AT) has decided to progress the Remuera residential parking zone through to implementation.
Project status: Detailed design.
Project zone: Central
To provide greater parking availability and flexibility Auckland Transport is progressing a new residential parking zone in Remuera. The proposal is a response to multiple requests from the community and high occupancy rates of on-street parking in the area - regularly above 85% occupancy at peak times.
- A residential parking zone that includes the entirety of Middleton Road, Ada Street, Mamie Street, Lauriston Avenue, and Belmont Terrace.
- Time restrictions of two hours (P120), Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm are proposed for the residential parking zone.
- The time restriction will only apply to vehicles that do not have permits or coupons.
- The P120 time restriction will replace most the existing parking restrictions in the area. However, the parking restrictions shown on the map will remain in place. Vehicles with residential parking permits or coupons will not be exempted from the existing parking restrictions that are to remain in place.
- All existing residential parking schemes such as Resident Only Permits, and Resident Exempt Permit Holders will be replaced by the new proposed zone. Existing holders of the permits will need to apply under the new zone.
NSAAT - No stopping at all times (broken yellow lines).
- 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.
- 28 October 2019 - Consultation opens on residential parking zone in Remuera.
- 24 November 2019 - Consultation closed.
- November to December - Public feedback considered.
- April 2020 - Public feedback report published.
- June 2020 – Tentative opening day of the residential parking zone (dependent on how the COVID-19 situation progresses). Auckland Transport will be in touch with residents and local businesses 6-8 weeks before the opening day of the residential parking zone.
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.
We sought public feedback on the project between 28 October and 24 November 2019.

Auckland Transport will be in touch with residents and local businesses 6-8 weeks before the opening day of the residential parking zone. The opening day is yet to be confirmed, but at this stage we are aiming for June 2020.
