Feedback from 195 residents on inner city parking changes

Rotorua Lakes Council received written feedback from 195 residents on changes proposed for inner city parking, during a public consultation period which closed last week.

Council Transport Solutions Director Stavros Michael said staff were currently working their way through the feedback forms to analyse comments before cost/benefit assessments could be undertaken.

The parking proposals had been put forward by the Inner City Focus Group’s Block Champions and were open for public comment for a month. They follow a two-year rolling trial of various parking arrangements in the inner city area.

The Block Champions recommended that all existing 90 and 60 minute free parking along the length of Tutanekai Street become 60 minute free parking, along with shorter adjacent sections of Arawa, Haupapa, Pukuatua, Hinemoa and Eruera streets. In the remaining sections of the five cross streets motorists would be allowed to park for up to three hours at $1 an hour.

The group also recommended the council’s Pukuatua Street Carpark Building have no time limits, and parking be $1 per hour with a maximum of $4 per day for casual parkers and $2 per day for concession holders.

Mr Michael said information compiled from public feedback would form part of a report to be considered by the council’s Strategy, Policy & Finance Committee at its 4 November meeting.

Recommendations from the committee with then go to the next full council meeting for final sign-off he said.

You know how it goes: Luxon doesn’t quite have the numbers, so his people start talking to the media to make him seem like the smart bet.
