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 consultation period for this guidance closed on 12 March 2021. Waka Kotahi is now working to review feedback and revise the document, before it is formally released in mid-2021.
