The proposed Transport Bylaw responds to the challenges of our growing city, and to changing legislation. The changes we are making are intended to improve the safety of our roads, and to improve transport connectivity and functioning of our city.
On this page you will find:
This will affect where you can park, how long you can park for, and how much you pay for parking.
You can see what we are proposing using our online GIS portal here.
The proposed Porirua City Centre Parking Plan provides more detail on how we have designed the parking schemes for the city centre, and what we are trying to achieve.
We are proposing to prohibit vehicles from Titahi Bay Beach, except for people launching and retrieving watercraft. This is to improve the safety and enjoyment of beach-goers, and to protect the nationally significant fossilized forest remnants on the beach.
We are also looking at broader safety issues around Titahi Bay beach. Council has recently agreed to undertake a safety audit of the North and South ends of the beach. This will be done in collaboration with the community and be conducted by the end of October, with the findings going to Council before the end of the year. You can read more here, as well as contact the team to be involved and give feedback.
Council has received a number of complaints about heavy vehicles parking in residential areas and/or in locations not suited to heavy vehicles. We are proposing new rules that will enable Council to issue infringements where parked vehicles are likely to cause a nuisance or danger to other road-users.
Council has received a number of complaints about engine braking, and we are aware that there is concern in the community about the impacts of noise from Transmission Gully and the new link roads opening. We are proposing new rules that will enable Council to prohibit engine braking where this will cause a nuisance to nearby residents.
The new Transmission Gully link roads in Waitangirua and Whitby will have engine braking restrictions included.
The new “Accessible Streets” regulatory package being prepared by the Ministry of Transport and Waka Kotahi is intended to encourage people out of private vehicles, and onto public transport, or using more active modes of transport, such as walking or cycling.
We are proposing new rules that will let Council identify and designate new bus lanes, cycle lanes, and shared pathways.
We’d love your feedback on the proposed Transport Bylaw to assist our Council in their decision-making.
