Parking and access plan for comment

Public feedback is being sought on a proposal by the Queenstown Lakes District Council to make "minor changes" to parking on Church St and a change to Searle Lane access.

QLDC project manager Lane Vermaas said both the street and lane were undergoing an upgrade to enhance and improve the streetscape, which included resurfacing of the road and "much-needed improvements" to the footpaths.

The changes proposed by the council would be needed "to fit with the improved streetscape" on Church St.

The mainly P30 parking in place from Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm would be unchanged, as would the two loading zones.

However, four parking spaces would be removed (down from 56 to 52) and the number of mobility parks would be reduced from four to two.

With the proposed reduction in mobility spaces in Church St, an additional mobility park was proposed on Earl St, near the Marine Pde intersection.

The street had no mobility parks at the moment, so the new mobility park would improve the distribution of those parks within the town centre, Mr Vermaas said.

Feedback on the proposal will close on June 25, and is scheduled to be reported to the council in July.
