We’re proposing changes to parking along this route to more fairly balance the needs of people who live or work here, walk, bike, drive, and use the area in different ways. Most of the changes are on the seaward side of Evans Bay Parade.
Reallocating street space, especially in the narrowest places where we are proposing car parks be removed, will make this area safer and more accessible for everyone.
Changing the parking times will mean more people can do the things they want to do - such as visiting friends, going to one of the cafés, walking the dog, taking the kids for a bike ride or just having a stroll by the sea.
In the Greta Point area, the proposed changes will improve people's access to businesses and some recreation facilities, make room for new pedestrian crossings, and allow more short-stay spaces for drop-offs and pick-ups.

In the area between the yacht club and Cobham Drive, most of the proposed parking changes are on the seaward side. The section between the yacht club and the northern end of Evans Bay Marina is also one of the narrowest sections of the route. These changes will make things safer and easier for everyone, with better visibility and wider traffic lanes for large trucks and buses so they do not cross the centre line.
We’ve talked with a wide range of people, businesses, groups and organisations in the past year to try to find the best way to balance different needs and aspirations on this stretch of the coastal route.
Draft plans – and the related draft traffic changes (resolutions) that would be necessary to make them happen – are now available for feedback.
Let us know what you think by 5pm, Thursday 14 October 2021.
