Extension of consultation period for Draft Parking Discussion Document

Due to the level of interest in Auckland’s Draft Parking Discussion Document, Auckland Transport (AT) has extended the public consultation period to 31 July.

Auckland Transport’s General Manager Strategy and Planning, Peter Clark says, “ For the first time in decades we have an opportunity to look at parking requirements and principles right across the region. Auckland Transport was approached by a number of organisations and asked to consider extending the consultation period due to the importance of the subject.

“We are seeking high level views at this stage with an opportunity for more localised, detailed and specific feedback following later”.

During August and September Auckland Transport will collate and group submissions and will develop proposed responses. Recommendations will be put before the Auckland Transport Board in September/October to make a decision on key principles to form a Parking Strategy for the region. The document will be finalised by the end of the year. In 2015 detailed, localised public consultations will begin on each principle. Some principles may take effect in months, other larger principles may be phased in over a number of years.

Auckland Transport is keen to get the public’s thoughts on a range of suggested approaches to improve Auckland’s parking, but specifically those relating to:

• The city centre, metropolitan and town centres

• Residential streets

• Off-street parking facilities (parking buildings)

• On-street parking restrictions

• Parking permits

• Park and rides
