P720 Feedback

AT’s proposal to implement P720 Parking Restrictions in Rosedale - feedback summary and outcome.

 

Feedback results

The proposal received positive feedback with some concerns raised by respondents. After reviewing this feedback and all other supporting evidence, the proposal will proceed without changes to the next stage of detailed planning.

 

Specific feedback

  1. Confusion over proposal
  • 8am – 6pm is only 10 hours?
  • Concern that staff will have to start paying for parking as there is currently not enough parking allocated to the business?

The proposed restrictions will apply from Monday 8am through to Friday 6pm, which is a total of 106 hours. Parking will only be legal for a maximum 12 hours at the same parking spot. After that cars may need to moved, otherwise may be ticketed.

The proposed 12 hour restriction is still free parking.

 

  1. Request for changes to the proposal
  • Reduce restriction to 9 hours to stop commuters from Constellation Park ‘n’ Ride

The aim of this consultation is to mitigate cars being parked for a number of days in this area as this is a very busy location Monday to Friday. However, AT cannot restrict its usage to any particular road user. AT will continue to monitor these areas after the proposal is implemented. Further improvements can be considered to address any flow on effects.

  • Request for paid parking

Paid parking may be considered in the future if occupancy levels remain over 85%. AT will continue to monitor these areas after the proposal is implemented.

  • Request for P840 (14 hours) to cover staff requirements

Our parking observations and the received feedback don’t suggest that there’s a need to extend the time restrictions to 14 hours. We feel the proposed time restriction would cover the staff requirements.

  • Request for restrictions to be 7 days

According to our observations the occupancy levels in weekends are significantly lower than weekdays. Therefore at this stage we don’t feel there’s a need for Mon-Sun time restrictions.

 

  1. Enforcement

Suggestion penalties should be sufficient enough to deter someone from parking over 12 hours (fine more than return shuttle bus ticket to the airport)

Recommendation that something be done to prevent car dealerships using on-street parking for their stock

Put ’12 hours’ on the sign as this is clearer than 720

The penalty fines increase the longer vehicles are parked over the allowed time of 12 hours.

Signs will clearly indicate that P720 equals 12 hours.

 

  1. Request for additional works

If you would like your request to be considered by AT for future development works, please go to https://at.govt.nz/about-us/contact-us/ to provide feedback.

 

Next Steps

We expect to introduce this work in the 2017/18 financial year, subject to any further changes in design or funding issues.

Contractors will issue 48-hour notice to all affected residents prior to construction work.
