5.   Context/Background

 

5.1       Ballantynes management have approached Council staff to assist with provision of temporary loading facilities, while their Lichfield Street Frontage is redeveloped. This redevelopment removes any loading opportunities on Lichfield Street. As there isn’t any current facilities on the Colombo Street frontage, the only opportunity is within the City Mall.  This is not ideal as loading is only permitted in early mornings and again in evenings.

5.2       While this is a temporary measure, the loading zone will be required for at least 12 months.  A P5 parking area was put in as part of consultation with Ballantynes, post-earthquake. They now advise that this short term parking is not critical for them.

5.3       A review of the whole block, brings measurements up to date, as well as the new Small Passenger Service vehicle change involving taxi stands.

5.4       With constantly changing parking requirements, a review of street blocks will occur from time to time.
