Making it safer and easier for people to get around in climate-friendly ways requires changes to how we use space on our streets. The parking impacts of these proposed changes have been considered and managed through the project’s Parking Management Plan. The impacts of these changes will vary across the route.
On Glenmore Street, the proposed parking changes include:
There will be no change to the current mobility parking, coach parking, or time limited parking spaces near the Kelburn viaduct.
These changes mean there will be a reduction in short stay parking on Glenmore Street which may require visitors to the Botanic Garden ki Paekākā to find off-street parking elsewhere, use one of five nearby paid car parking areas, or use public or active transport to get to the gardens.
Approximately 65% of properties on this street have off street parking.
On Chaytor Street, the proposed parking changes include:
Approximately 90 percent of properties on Chaytor Street have off-street parking.
On Karori Road, the proposal is to remove 198 out of 279 unrestricted car parks.
The proposal would:
Other parking types will be converted, including:
On this road, approximately 90 percent of properties have off street parking.
The effect on businesses on Karori Road will be minimal as they will be easier to access on foot, by bus, or by bike, and there are few parking changes in front of businesses proposed.
At Karori Park, the effect for visitors will be a reduction in unrestricted parking on Karori Road. However, only 10 percent of car parks within 150m of Karori Park entrances will be affected. The changes may require people who need to drive to park in side streets and walk further.
