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

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.

  • CLOSED: This survey has concluded.

    Over the next 30 years Wellington will be home to another 50,000-80,000 residents and many more workers will commute in from the wider region. 

    We need to look at how we allocate road space for parking and manage parking differently to support our growing population. We need a more efficient transport system that makes better use of our limited road space while helping to reduce the city’s carbon emissions. This means moving more people using fewer vehicles; more public transport use, walking and cycling and fewer people driving and parking in busy areas. 

    We value your feedback, and want your feedback on our proposals for a new parking policy in the 23 questions below. Please answer the questions that are applicable to you.
