Proposed declaration of part of Commerce Street as a Pedestrian Mall

Hamilton City Council is seeking submissions from 10 July to 12 August 2013 on the proposed declaration of part of Commerce Street as a Pedestrian Mall.

Summary of proposed changes

Council has the power under Section 336 of the Local Government Act 1974, by using the Special Consultative Procedure, to declare a road a pedestrian mall, and prohibit or restrict the driving, riding or parking of any vehicle, on all or any portion of the pedestrian mall either generally or during particular hours.

Commerce Street’s current legal status is that of a road and for the majority of the time it is used as such however from 7am to 2pm on Saturdays the section from Kent Street to High Street is used by the community as a market space. Council proposes to declare the section of Commerce Street from Kent Street to High Street as a Pedestrian Mall for the hours of 7am to 2pm every Saturday morning. This will enable Frankton Market to legally continue on that site whilst removing the conflict of vehicles.

Submissions closed at 4pm on Monday, 12 August 2013. 

Council will hear those submitters who have indicated that they wish to speak in support of their written submissions on 29 August 2013.
