Parking

Photograph of Map for ParkingFollowing a two-year rolling trial of various parking arrangements for the inner city, and stakeholder engagement and public consultation, the council agreed on final parking arrangements at its meeting of 12 November 2015. The council decision provides for:

  •  A mix of free 60 minute maximum parking in most of Tutanekai St and adjoining parts of Arawa, Haupapa, Pukuatua, Hinemoa and Eruera streets.
  • The remaining sections of the five cross streets extending to Ranolf St in the western side of the city and Fenton St in the east will have $1-an-hour parking for up to three hours.
  • Other parts of the inner city, including the Pukuatua St Carpark Building remain unchanged.

Implementation of the new arrangements comes into effect from Monday 25 January.

Pukuatua St Carpark Building available $1 per hour – no time maximum.

The decisions support the Rotorua 2030 Inner City Revitalisation goal, and are aimed at encouraging people into the inner city, while optimising parking space turnover and availability in the busiest locations.

 P60 Parking Sign Definition

A P60 sign means that you can only park in that space for a maximum of 60 minutes after which time you must remove your vehicle. As with P15 (15 minutes) parking spaces you are liable to receive a parking infringement notice requiring payment of a fine if you park longer than the maximum permitted time.
The introduction of electronic sensors fixed on the road surface within parking spaces means vehicles parking over maximum permitted times can now be readily identified.
P60 limits are enforced from 9am to 5pm Mondays to Fridays, and 9am to 12noon on Saturdays. Maximum parking times in the inner city don’t apply on Saturday afternoons, Sundays and public holidays.

Metered and Pay & Display

Metered and ‘pay & display’ areas outside of P60 zones are also monitored 9am-5pm Monday to Friday and Saturday mornings, but not enforced Saturday afternoons, Sundays and public holidays.

Paid parking tickets can be purchased from a Pay & Display machine prior to 9am and they will automatically calculate your available parking stay time from 9am. However parking meters are not able to do this and will start the parking time countdown as soon as coins are inserted.

 Wireless Sensors

Sensors are located throughout the city in paid and free parking spaces
