    I am pleased there is an attempt to create more short stay parks close to the hub. At present there is NOT enough short term parking close to the Community centre and pool so I hope this changes with the redevelopment.

    I am concerned about the safety of the workers who park on these streets to either get to their job in the hall or those who need to park there as there aren't enough park and ride parks when catching the train. Do we want women walking further in the dark? Also what about the kindy (oh I forgot it is being sacrificed for this project) and the schools which already have limited access to parks at their peak times. This endangers the safety of our kids. Also will the one-way system make accessing St Brigids even more difficult for pick up and drop offs? Sort the mall and make lots of parks- easy solution!!

    Inappropriate planning for short term when you are taking cars away. What happens to all the commuters, where do they park now?

    As a teacher at St Brigid's it is difficult to find a park many of the days I go to school. I am concerned that for teachers and parents of our school it will get worse once these parking restrictions come into force as commuters will be parking in the very few places where we can park. These commuters will often be parking there before I get to school and well before the parents. It is really busy along Phillip St as it is. Have you driven down these streets at school drop off and pick up and during the day? Surely you will know that it is tricky now. What about when the new housing developments on Phillip St and on Frankmoore start? Are they not due to start around this time frame too? As that will lead to even more chaos around this area. It was bad enough when the bridge was being replaced. You need to take in to consideration all the other amenities in the surrounding area as well and think about the impact this proposal will have on these people.

    A lot of the streets around Johnsonville are already full with long term parkers. Also worried about the security of these cars the further they are away from more central Johnsonville shopping area. Also I use the pool and wonder if people may park there if they can't get a short term park anywhere else.

    Anything is better than the way it looks now

    Seems the best way of dealing with limited space

    I'm very concerned about the loss of 33 car parking spaces for computers in the next year. Especially in the streets nearest the railway station. Most all day commuters park in the dark and arrive back in the dark. It is not safe for women on their own walking around badly lit areas of Johnsonville. Especially where the council takes 6-8 weeks to replace a critical light near the park! I challenge your research. You only have to cruise around this area after 7:30am on a work day and it is full! The only other options are parking up the inclines of Frankmoore and Woodland Roads. Both not ideal and cause other conjestion problems. You don't say whether the 200 car parks (longterm) will be available all day and whether they will be paid. NZ Rail has surely noticed an increased in commuters from Jville since the new trains and that is good for the region. Car parks have to made available as part of that increase in commuter traffic!

    Parking is already tight at times do losing parking will only exacerbate that. Is there a way of minimising car park loss in the interim? Park and ride should be encouraged to promote commuting by train/bus.

    Reducing pool parking doesn't seem wise if you want to promote use of pools particularly to families with young children and to less mobile people.

    There is already a huge shortage of car parks for all day parking
