Randwick Crescent (Moera Carpark) - Proposed Mobility Park and No Stopping At All Times Restrictions

 

Purpose of Report

1.††† The purpose of this report is to seek Councilís approval for the installation of a Mobility Park and No Stopping At All Times Restrictions at the Moera Carpark, in Randwick Crescent, Moera as shown in Appendix 1 attached to the report.

Recommendation

That the Subcommittee recommends that Council approves the installation of a Mobility Park and No Stopping At All Times Restrictions at the Moera Carpark, in Randwick Crescent, as shown in Appendix 1 attached to the report.

 

Background

2.††† In August 2016, Council installed parking lines in the Moera Carpark to improve parking etiquette and maximise the number of available parking spaces.

3.††† Following the changes, Council received a request from the Moera Community House to install a Mobility Park Restriction in the carpark and provide additional parking spaces adjacent to the playground.†

4.††† Council officers investigated the area and concluded that according to the Australian/New Zealand Parking Facilities Standard the aisle width is insufficient to provide additional parking spaces adjacent to the playground.

Discussion

5.††† The installation of a Mobility Park and No Stopping At All Times Restrictions, as proposed, will improve parking etiquette in the car park and provide a dedicated mobility park in the area.

Options

6.††† The options are:

a)††††† To leave the area as it is without any restrictions and accept the parking issues will remain or,

b)††††† To install the proposed changes and improve the level of service for visitors to the area.

Consultation

7.††† The request was made and is supported by the Moera Community Centre Co-ordinator.

8.††† Hutt City Council Reserves Asset Manager was consulted and supports the proposal.

9.††† As no properties are directly affected by the proposed changes, no further consultation has been undertaken.

10.† At its meeting held on 3 April 2017, the Petone Community Board resolved to endorse the recommendation contained in the report.

Legal Considerations

11.† These restrictions are made pursuant to the provisions of the Hutt City Council Traffic Bylaw 2007 (Amended 20 November 2014).

Financial Considerations

12.† These changes can be funded from Councilís 2016/2017 operational budget.

Other Considerations

13.† 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. It does this in a way that is cost-effective because it utilises standards signage.

Appendices

No.
