The Council would like your feedback on a proposal to allow a new access way to Trelissick Park via Oban Street in Wadestown.
||2 October 2018
||5.00p.m., 29 October 2018
About the proposal
The proposed new access way is situated between two residential houses on Oban Street.
On the one hand, the proposed new access way would:
- add an additional access point to Trelissick Park from Wadestown
- create an additional loop route that includes the Hanover Street entrance, a bush track and a street walk.
On the other hand, the proposed new access way could cause:
- the privacy of the two residences on either side of it to be impacted by the construction and use of the new access way
- the residents of the area in general to be impacted by increased traffic - foot or motorised - because the proposed access is at the end of a narrow cul-de-sac.
The purpose of the survey is to determine:
- the level of impact on and the level of support among residents
- the level of support among current and potential users of the park.
Background to the proposal
In the 2016 Open Space Access Plan, the Council agreed to investigate a new park entrance from Wadestown.
Oban Street in Wadestown provides an opportunity for this second entrance as the Council owns a 1.5-metre wide right-of-way between two properties.
There are currently seven entrances into the park; six from Ngaio / Crofton Downs and one from Wadestown / Highland Park.
About Trelissick Park
Trelissick Park is located below Ngaio Gorge Road and crosses the suburbs of Ngaio, Crofton Downs and Wadestown.
