Parking Policy - we want your views

17 March 2020

Wellington City Council is seeking feedback on a proposed new parking policy.

The proposals include prioritising parking types in different parts of the city, pricing strategies and area based planning which will ensure a joint approach to addressing parking issues in each area.

Over time the policy will influence how the Council makes decisions on parking management and this may change how you can access parking in different parts of the city. So it's important everyone takes the opportunity to share their views.

Mayor Andy Foster, Councillors and council staff will be out and about in communities around the city to talk to Wellingtonians about the proposals. The schedule below is subject to Government direction on COVID-19 containment measures.
