Parking survey to get underway this Thursday

Ashburton District Council is advising people parked in the Ashburton CBD this Thursday (30 November) to not be alarmed if they see people taking note of parked vehicles in the vicinity, as they will be conducting a survey.

Surveyors will be walking the CBD recording the last three digits of parked vehicle licence plates as part of the Council’s review of its parking strategy.

“The survey is not an enforcement exercise - it’s to gather data on parking occupancy and turnover. The results from the survey will feed into a larger project that will look at traffic and parking options for the CBD,” Council Environmental Services Group Manager Jane Donaldson says.

The surveyors will be wearing hi-vis clothing and will be carrying clipboards. The survey area will include the West Street carpark and East Street, as well as Havelock, Burnett, Tancred, Moore and Cass streets.
