4.   Deputations by Appointment

Part B

 

4.1       David Halstead, Richard Simpson, Emily Baulcot – Joyce Crescent Proposed P120 Parking Restrictions

             Ms Emily Baulcot was in attendance and spoke on behalf of herself and her neighbour, Lynette Stock, against the proposed P120 parking restrictions being installed in Joyce Crescent. 

 

             Ms Baulcot advised of a family member who flew the medical emergency helicopter necessitating the parking of an emergency response vehicle close to the house and on an irregular pattern due to the ‘on call’ nature of the work.

 

             Ms Baulcot also advised of a similar situation on behalf of Ms Stock whereby a family member works night shifts.  In both cases the proposed parking restrictions would not accommodate ‘on call’ or shift working and could affect the ability to respond effectively to ‘call outs’, and/or, possibly generate safety concerns for night shift workers having to park away from their properties, potentially in the dark. 

 

             Ms Baulcot (and Ms Stock) requested residents permits be considered for such circumstances.

 

             Both Ms Baulcot and Ms Stock were in favour of the ‘No Stopping’ restrictions.

 

             Mr Halstead and Mr Simpson were in attendance and spoke in favour of the installation of P120 parking restrictions and the No Stopping restrictions being proposed for Joyce Crescent.  They cited safety concerns and lack of visibility in support of the no stopping restrictions and supported the P120 parking restrictions due to the lack of parking in the street due to students parking in the area.

 

             For the decision on this matter please refer clause 8 below.

 

Part B

The Fendalton/Waimairi Community Board thanked the deputations for their presentations.

 

5.   Presentation of Petitions

Part B

There was no presentation of petitions.  

 

8.   Joyce Crescent - Proposed P120 Parking Restriction

 

Board Comment

The Board considered the information raised during the deputations as well as staff advice that residents permits were only permissible under Council Policy where there was no off street parking on the affected properties.  This was not the case for Joyce Crescent residents. 

The Board noted that it had been instrumental in obtaining a 12 month trial for contractor permits in  the Holmwood Road area and wished to explore how this trial could be extended to include parking of emergency vehicles and other specific exemptions.

Councillors Manji and Gough advised that this was potentially a citywide issue and worth of further discussion by the Council, perhaps by way of an informal workshop.
