22 Kings Crescent - Proposed P30 Parking Restriction
Purpose of Report
1. The purpose of this report is to seek Council approval for the replacement of two Pay & Display P120 Parking Restrictions parks with P30 Parking Restrictions outside Nº 22 Kings Crescent, attached as Appendix 1 to the report.
That the Subcommittee recommends that Council approves the replacement of two Pay & Display P120 Parking Restrictions parks with P30 Parking Restriction outside Nº 22 Kings Crescent attached as Appendix 1 to the report.
2. Council has received a request from the Co’Ed Café, at Nº 22 Kings Crescent, to change the existing Pay & Display (P&D) P120 Parking Restriction outside their shop to a P30 Parking Restriction.
3. The replacement of a P&D P120 Parking Restriction with a P30 Parking Restriction as proposed will encourage parking turnover and support the adjacent business.
4. The options are:
a. To leave the area as it is with the existing P&D P120 Parking Restrictions or,
b. To install the proposed changes encouraging parking turnover and supporting the adjacent business.
5. A plan of the proposal was forwarded to the Manager of the Co’Ed Café, who consulted with the only other directly affected business AllFinanz located at the same premises Nº 22 Kings Crescent, who supports the proposal.
6. These restrictions are made pursuant to the provisions of the Hutt City Council Traffic Bylaw 2007 (Amended 20 November 2014).
7. These changes can be funded from Council’s 2016/2017 operational budget.
8. In making this recommendation, officers have given careful consideration to the purpose of local government in section 10 of the Local Government Act 2002. Officers believe that this recommendation falls within the purpose of the local government in that it supports adjacent businesses. It does this in a way that is cost-effective because it utilises standards signage.
