Feedback is being sought by the Queenstown Lakes District
Council on a proposal to place new time restrictions on car
parks in Frankton and Arrowtown In Arrowtown, it is proposed
all unrestricted parks in Buckingham St get a 60-minute
limit, no-parking lines be painted along both sides of
Wiltshire St between Hertford and Berkshire Sts and a P10
park be installed opposite the pharmacy or one or two of the
existing P60s be changed to P10s.
In Frankton, the proposals include a 60-minute restriction on
the seven car parks on the corner of Frankton Shopping Centre
and McBride St, a 60-minute limit on all parks within the
Frankton bus stop area, a 120-minute limit on both sides of
McBride St from Gray St to Frankton Rd and a 10-hour limit in
the Gray St car park.
Council transport manager Denis Mander said the changes were
to make businesses and facilities more accessible.
"We're also addressing some safety issues around parking in
Wiltshire St, where people had been parking in such a way
that the road was sometimes impassable for larger vehicles,
including the fire trucks."
Feedback on the proposed changes closes on Friday, December
7, and can be emailed to email@example.com or
posted to "Parking Restrictions Feedback", Queenstown Lakes
District Council, Private Bag 50072, Queenstown.
