We have introduced a new parking programme to help revitalise our heart of the city. This includes P120 parking (120 minutes) which applies to designated inner city streets, with pay meters and unlimited free parking on the city fringes, as well as the Pukuatua Street carpark building.

P120 Parking Sign Definition:
A P120 sign means that you can only park in that space for a maximum of 120 minutes (2 hours). Just like a P15 (15 minutes) you are liable for a parking fine if you stay longer than that.
Parking Wardens do administer a grace period, although with the introduction of the electronic sensor, vehicles parked longer can now be detected.
The P120 spaces will be enforced from 8am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 12noon on Saturdays. Sundays and public holidays will not be enforced as is the current practise.
Metered and Pay & Display
Existing metered and pay & display areas outside of the P120 zone will continue to be enforced from 9am. Paid spaces will be enforced from 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 12noon on Saturdays. Sundays and public holidays will not be enforced as is the current practise.
You are able to purchase a ticket from a Pay & Display machine prior to 9am as it will automatically calculate your parking stay time from 9am. Parking Meters are unable to do this and register the time immediately when the money is put in them.
As part of the campaign to launch Park Rotorua and the free P120 parking, every weekday until Christmas one lucky person parked in the free P120 zone will receive a “winning ticket” and win a prize. Check out the details here.
