South-East Richmond parking review

We commenced a review of parking in the South-East area in response to residents' feedback.

Background

In December 2016, we received petitions from residents of Cambrian Road and Chisholm Road requesting the introduction of a new Controlled Parking Zone (CPZ). These petitions and the local parking conditions were taken into account when deciding the appropriate course of action.

As part of the review we consulted with affected residents to seek their feedback on whether they would wish to see a new CPZ introduced in this area.

Consultation with residents

1st stage consultation - January 2017

This consultation sought feedback from residents on whether they would wish to see a new CPZ introduced in the area.

Drawings

The consultation closed on Friday 24 February 2017. 

Results

Of the roads consulted, two showed adequate support for a new CPZ to be introduced – Cambrian Road and Chisholm Road.

Decision

A decision was made to progress with the implementation of a new CPZ, the South-East Richmond CPZ (zone A3), in Cambrian Road and Chisholm Road only.

2nd stage consultation - October 2017

Residents inside the CPZ boundary (Cambrian Road and Chisholm Road) were specifically consulted on what days and hours they wanted the new CPZ to operate.

Residents were also asked for their views on the layout of the parking bays or yellow lines and specifically whether they would prefer a parking bay or a yellow line across their driveway or garage, if appropriate.

Properties outside the new CPZ boundary but situated within the 1st Stage consultation area were consulted on whether they wished to be included in the CPZ.  If the results from roads outside the new CPZ boundary also show majority support, we would consider adding these roads to the CPZ provided an area could be formed.

The consultation closed on Friday 10 November 2017.

2nd stage results

  • Most respondents in Cambrian Road and Chisholm Road wanted the zone to operate Monday to Saturday, 8.30am to 6.30pm.
  • There was inadequate support from the other roads in the area.

Decision

Recommendations will be made to implement the South-East Richmond CPZ (A3) in Cambrian Road and Chisholm Road operating Monday to Saturday, 8.30am to 6.30pm. A date for implementation is yet to be confirmed.

The A3 CPZ is to be implemented by way of Experimental Traffic Orders to provide a period of operational experience of the scheme and to allow representations to be made during the first six months of operation.

Parking beat surveys

Parking beat surveys were carried in the area during the early part of 2017 to assess the levels of parking demand in the area.

The surveys tried to establish reasonable estimates of the following:

  • residents' vehicles parked
  • all day commuters parked, and
  • short stay vehicles parked.

The estimates were made using our parking beat survey criteria(pdf, 182KB).

The results are shown in graphical form together with a summary by street.
