Mobility parking

The 1 hr free parking will continue for all ‘Pay and Display’ parking areas until further notice. Usual restrictions apply to all limited time parks, disability parks, loading zones etc.

Mobility parking permit holders can use mobility parking spaces, which are wider than standard parks and closer to venues.

These spaces are marked with the disability symbol, and in many areas are now painted blue. This includes public and private car parks, such as shopping malls, hospitals and supermarkets. Concessions also apply to P30 and P60 time restricted parking areas.

If you are a mobility card holder and you find all the mobility parking spaces are full, you can use other parking spaces. With your valid mobility parking permit displayed, the following concessions apply:

Parking space Concession
P30 Time Limited Zone Double time to 60 minutes
P60 Time Limited Zone Double time to 120minutes
Pay and Display Pay for the first hour and the next hour is free

Note: We accept overseas Mobility Parking Permits in the Waitaki district.
