Parking Permits

​​​Reserved Parking

Council will consider applications for the temporary closure of metered and time limited parking spaces in the Ashburton District.

Other circumstances will be considered on a case by case basis.


Factors Council will take into account when considering an application include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Impact on surrounding businesses
  • Availability of parking in that area 
  • Appropriate alternative locations for the type of activity requested ​
  • The number of spaces that need to be closed
  • Whether the period of time proposed is appropriate
