Mobility parking in the city and how to apply for a permit - or complain about illegal parking.
Mobility parking permits
Mobility parking permits allow you to park in a Council-owned car park (excluding parking buildings) for longer than the time restriction. This recognises the extra time needed to go to and from destinations. With a mobility card you can park for:
- 1 hour over any time restriction of 30 minutes or longer
- 1 hour over the time you've paid for.
Note: Normal parking charges still apply.
You need to clearly display your mobility parking permit on the dashboard of your vehicle.
Types of permit that can be used include:
You can apply for a permit if you:
- are unable to walk
- rely on a wheelchair or other mobility device
- cannot walk 200m without help.
Apply for a permit
You can apply for a Mobility Parking Permit by contacting CCS Disability Action New Zealand on 0800 227 2255.
