Board supports time-limited parking on Collins Street

Waimakariri District Council media release: 24th August 2021

The Rangiora-Ashley Community Board threw their support behind the introduction of time restrictions for parking on Rangiora’s Collins Street at their August meeting, after concerns were raised by the community about all day parking.

According to a report from Council staff, residents and businesses in the area raised the issue of all day parkers taking up valuable customer and resident parking during public consultation over an upgrade to Cone Street.

Collins Street currently has no restrictions on how long cars can park on the street, and has become a popular spot for all day parking due to how close it is to the town centre.

The report recommended three options:

  1. Apply P120 parking restrictions to both sides of Collins Street.
  2. Apply P120 parking restrictions to the south side of Collins Street only.
  3. Leave as status quo.

Board Chair Jim Gerard said the Board were in support of option one, which will see sixteen P120 time restricted car parks on Collins Street.

“We felt that this best supports parking turnover in the area, and provides more parking opportunities for visitors to local businesses as well as for the residents who live in Collins Street,” said Jim.

New Bus Stop for South Belt

The Board moved on to approve a new bus stop to be located on South Belt, west of Buckleys Road, following a deputation from two residents.

A number of residents preferred to have the bus stop closer to Clearbook Lane and Matawai Close. However, the Board opted to locate the new bus stop west of Buckleys Road, outside 93A and 93B South Belt, as there were concerns over loss of parking and the road width at the proposed location further east. The Board also considered this site had a safer stopping zone as the road has a set back in that area.
