Freemans Bay has two key parking issues:
1. Auckland Unitary Plan and the Removal of Minimum parking requirements (MPRs)
The Unitary Plan proposes removal of all minimum parking requirements for Freemans Bay and other city fringe suburbs. This mean new apartment buildings / town house complexes will not be required to put in any parking. There has been no consultation on this change.
2. Auckland Transport Regional Parking Strategy: Residential Parking Scheme
Freemans Bay residents filed over 440 submission in response the this strategy – which comprised around half of the submissions received on RPS’s.
The Association has been working closely with AT to progress a parking scheme for Freemans Bay.
Permits have now been issued and signage for the parking scheme have been erected. The scheme will be formally in place by early December 2016
