Background

London Street, between Dublin Street and Canterbury Street, currently has a variety of on street parking restrictions, parking signage, and line markings. Due to the rebuilding and relocation of the Lyttelton fire station and the ambulance station, we are reviewing the current on street parking layout. We will also be installing new clear access markings for the emergency services stations. Parking demand is high at times including Saturdays with the Lyttelton Farmers Market.

 What are we proposing?

  • Ensure entrances to St Johns and the fire station are kept clear for emergency vehicles, with yellow cross hatching on the road
  • "No stopping" lines on several vehicle entrances that are not clearly visible
  • "No stopping" lines on Canterbury Street outside Albion Square, for maintenance vehicles access.
  • Install a 60 minute parking restriction* from Spooky Boogie café to Canterbury Street
  • Install a 60 minute parking restriction* from the old fire station site to Canterbury Street
  • Install a five minute parking restriction outside the ATM.

* Between 8am and 6pm seven days a week
