Car parking, bus and loading bays
There are a number of loading and car parks areas being proposed across the town centre.
The car parks have been deliberately located around the periphery of the town centre to encourage visitors to move through the town centre by foot. Accessible parking is proposed in multiple locations across the town centre to minimise travel distances for physically impaired drivers.
There is a main car park south of the development which will provide the majority of parking amenity for the town centre.
Car park two is located off Tennyson Street to the rear of the upcoming shops. This will provide 44 car parks. Car park three is located on the south of the site, just off Tennyson Street. It will provide 130 to140 parking spaces with the final number being dependent upon the number of accessible parks and parent parks that are provided.
There is also a bus stop on Tennyson Street which will be directly across from the new Te Ara Ātea Library and Community Centre. The indented bus bays and loading bays are 2.5m wide with lengths of 13.5m and 12m respectively. The loading bays will service the retail and commercial operators.
On-street, right angled parking bays are proposed in all areas. The bays are designed to be 2.6m wide and 5.0m deep in accordance with District Plan standard.
