Consultation has concluded

As part of our decision making process we’d love to know what you think about possible parking restriction changes in Turner Street, Highgate. Below is a summary of why we are considering doing this, what is proposed, and how you can provide your comments.


At the City’s Ordinary Meeting of Council on 12 November 2019, a petition was received with 109 signatures, comprising both residents and users of Jack Mark’s Reserve, requesting that Council consider changing the parking restrictions in Turner Street, Highgate.

What's proposed?

The petition sought to have the parking changed from the northern side of Turner Street to the southern side. The idea being that it would provide additional parking as there are no property driveways adjacent the park.

However, because of the narrow width of Turner Street parking can only be accommodated on one-side of the road and as result the entire length of the northern side would become ‘No Stopping’.

In addition to restricting all of the parking to one side of the road a third option was suggested whereby several bays were proposed on the opposite side of Turner Street at the Lord Street end, to provide both an improved amenity for the adjacent residents and to act a traffic calming measure.

The three options are shown below:

The request is to trial any changes for 12 months, pending the results of this consultation, to allow a proper assessment of the impact of these parking restriction changes on the residents of Turner Street and the users of Jack Mark’s Reserve.
