Proposed Parking Management Plan and Parking Bylaw 2017

Whanganui District Council is currently publicly consulting on its Proposed Parking Management Plan and Parking Bylaw 2017.

The Council is proposing to retain parking rules controlling parking vehicles on a roadway and for display or sale, carrying out major repairs of vehicles on the road, and leaving broken down vehicles on the road for a period exceeding seven days.

Proposed changes to parking are:

  • to increase parking time limits within Victoria Avenue from 60 minutes to 90 minutes
  • to increase the parking time limits in St Hill Street (between Guyton Street and Ingestre Street)
  • to include airport parking and disabled parking outside of the town centre in the parking management plan
  • to include parking exemptions for mobility card holders, super gold card holders and  tradespersons or special event permits​
