It would potentially remove roadside parking on about three percent of the city’s roads over the next decade and replace them with carpooling, bus and cycle lanes.

Most of the roads covered by the proposal are in the central suburbs and Auckland city. They include Ponsonby, Sandringham, Mt Eden and Manukau roads, and part of Great North Road.

The motion passed 13 to 10, and the public’s feedback is sought throughout April.

– More to come
