The draft National Parking Management Guidance has been developed to provide consistent, best-practice guidance for the management of on-street parking and publicly owned/managed off-street parking in New Zealand.
This guidance supports Keeping Cities Moving, the Waka Kotahi mode shift plan, with parking management being a key intervention for influencing mode shift.
The guidance also supports the National Policy Statement for Urban Development, developed by the Ministry for the Environment and the Ministry of Housing and Urban Development, which includes a policy that requires local authorities to remove minimum car parking requirements from developments, other than for accessible car parks.
The guidance has been released as a draft for consultation for a period of four months, to 12 March 2021. Waka Kotahi will then review feedback and revise the document, before it is formally released in mid-2021.
If you have any feedback or questions, please send them to ParkingManagement@nzta.govt.nz
We also welcome any recommendations for case studies, particularly in regional towns and cities.
