By now, you may have seen the flyer which came in your letterbox about the proposed parking changes in Grafton, and how to give feedback on the proposal.

You can see more background on the proposal, at the AT site, including details on:

  • the project itself,
  • a map of the proposed parking zone,
  • proposed costs, of both residential permits and on street, casual parking,
  • a list of properties eligible to apply for a residential permit
  • summarised findings of the Grafton parking study (as below).

The parking study 

According to the AT site, the study discovered the following:

  • On average, 91% of on-street parking was occupied during weekdays.
  • 98% of parking in most of the residential streets was occupied
  • The majority of vehicles parked all day
  • The turnover of vehicles in paid parking areas was higher than in the time-restricted or unrestricted areas, where vehicles would often over-stay or park all day.

Which streets are affected

Under the proposal, the following streets would have paid parking, with residential permits:

  • Carlton Gore Road, from Aratou Place to Park Rd
  • Seafield View Road
  • Claremont Street
  • Parkfield Terrace
  • Huntly Avenue
  • Glasgow Tce (but not Boyle Crescent, as it has no on-street parking spaces)

Consultation period, and opportunity to meet with the team

You can give feedback until the 31st of July, in a number of ways:¬† by filling in the back of the flyer which came through your letterbox, through the AT website, or at a ‘Meet the Team’ session in Grafton.

You can talk to the team on

  • Saturday 15 July, 9am to 1pm, at
  • Domain Lodge Hall, 1 Boyle Crescent, Grafton.
