Thank you for your interest and to those who entered a submission, joined our webinars, commented on our social media posts, participated in our quick polls or spoke to us in person.

The final parking policy was adopted by the full Council on 26 August 2020. The agenda, reports and minutes for this meetings can be found here.

What's the new policy about?

The new policy provides a framework to guide future decision-making on the management of all Council-controlled parking spaces. This includes off-street parking and on-street parking, both free-of-charge (unrestricted) and those which incur a user-charge. Off-street parking includes parking areas at any of the Council’s parks, sports, recreation and other community facilities; and any off-street parking buildings that the Council controls.

The policy sets out objectives, high level principles, a parking space hierarchy (that prioritises the types of parking in different areas), area-based parking management guidance (that prioritises how we manage supply and demand). It also provides a new approach to setting parking fees and developing area-based parking management plans.

Revoked Policies

As a result of this decision, the Parking Policy 2007 and the Mobility Parking Policy 2005 are revoked and will be removed from the Wellington City Council website and replaced with the Parking Policy 2020 and the Mobility Parking Guidelines.

The Car Share Policy 2016 will also be revoked and removed from the Wellington City Council website once replacement Car Share Guidelines have been finalised. All the documents will be released on this website and the Wellington City Council website.

Feedback

You can find the details of the feedback we received through this website here. A document of all of the Parking Policy submissions, including feedback submitted via email or post, is available now and an engagement report on the consultation period is available here. A summary of the submissions is available here. During the Parking Policy consultation we hosted Ward-inars. You can view the recordings for those now and read the answers to some of the questions that were posed.

    We have postponed public face-to-face engagement on this proposal in response to further closures as a results of the Covid-19 Level 4 announcement.

    A new submission deadline will be set once we are able to re-start our face-to-face engagement, our libraries re-open and we can set a new date for oral hearings.

    All comments, submissions and requests for oral hearings we have received so far have been collected and will be analysed with the data we collect when the process starts up again.

    For now, you can read about our proposals, make your submission and ask a question if you would like.

    Thank you for being part of Kōrero Mai | Let's Talk Wellington. We love hearing from Wellingtonians on what is important to them in their city. Please take a moment to update your profile to make sure you hear about opportunities to have your say in the future.

    We've had a few questions about the impact that Covid-19 will have in regards to our face to face engagement. We will continue to follow the advice from the Ministry of Health with regards to public facing engagement. This means we will review the situation daily and provide updates as required.



    In the mean time,

    • We are currently planning a public webinar for the week of 23rd March – webinars can be viewed live or watched at a later time when convenient.
    • We are adding an interactive Questions and Answers section to this website to provide the public with a way to ask us questions and see other questions and responses.
    • Hard copies of the documents and submission forms are available at our libraries and community centres, which, at this time, remain open to the public.
    • If further restrictions are introduced before the end of the consultation period we may consider extending the submission deadline.
    • The opportunity to make an oral submission will remain, however, depending on the situation at the end of April, these may get scheduled for later or held in a different way.
