Parking in our district

We have put together a draft strategy that aims to provide a framework for managing parking across our district. We want our parking spaces to be designed in a way that is efficient and effective for everyone.

A key action in the strategy is developing detailed parking management plans for each of our towns and larger settlements. These plans set out the specific measures that will be used to manage parking, and target known problems. We have put together the first of these, for the Ashburton town centre, and are wanting your feedback on this as well as the strategy.

The two documents we are wanting your feedback on, are:

  • Draft Ashburton District Parking Strategy
  • Draft Ashburton Town Centre Parking Management Plan

We are accepting feedback until 5pm Wednesday 6 October 2021.

Below, you can read the consultation document along with the strategy and both a summary and full version of the plan. If you have any questions, send us an email at

Once you've looked over the documents, let us know what you think by completing our survey here.
