We are experiencing a high demand for short stay parking in the carpark beside the Sign of the Kiwi. Changes to the existing carpark are proposed to work to meet this demand.

Project status: Open for feedback
Open for feedback: 5th October 2018 - 25th October 2018
05 Oct 2018

Why are we proposing changes?

With the views and recreation opportunities attracting all types of visitors to the Port Hills, parking availability needs to reflect the parking requirements of all users.

The carpark located at Sign of the Kiwi has high demand for short stay parking due to the café and visitors taking a quick stop to look at the view.

Changes we are proposing to the existing carpark:

  • 10 existing carparks to become P60
  • one existing carpark to become a mobility park
  • designated motorcycle parking signposted
