Parking hours review

We're reviewing paid parking hours in Palmerston North. Feedback on this proposal closed at 5pm on Wednesday 11 August.

Photo shows carparks along Cuba Street filled to capacity at dusk.

We're proposing to extend the hours you pay to park on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, and introduce paid parking on Sunday.

As Palmy grows there's increased demand on our transport network, including parking. These changes will help us manage that demand, and increase turnover to ensure parks are available for shoppers and visitors at peak times.

Proposed hours

Thursday and Friday 8.30am to 5.30pm 8.30am to 9pm
