Parking time limits change in Havelock North

Feedback from the public has led to a number of changes to parking time limits near the Havelock North CBD.

The time limit for parking outside the library has been increased from 60 to 120 minutes after library staff indicated that users required more time to make their selections. The extra parking time will also be of benefit to those who attend meetings or functions at the community centre or attend church services at the nearby St Columbas or St Lukes churches. These groups had also expressed concern at the short parking time frame that had been provided earlier in the year.

The other change will see a 120 minute time limit established on parking spaces outside the Havelock North Swimming Pool and directly across the road from the pools. The new time limit applies between Monday and Friday but only during the summer season which runs between November 1st and March 10th.

Council proposed that the 120 minute limit be applied all year round however the swimming pool trust said parking issues only arose during the busy summer months. The parking spaces outside the pool will have no time limits during the winter which will help commuters with all day parking when they are visiting the CBD.

The new time limits are likely to have an effect on parking when large events are held in the Havelock North domain but Council parking managers will work with event organisers to resolve any issues which may arise.
