New proposals for Hahei parking - have your say

10 August 2018

Our Council is proposing some changes to parking in Hahei to better cope with the huge demand from visitors to Cathedral Cove and the beach.

We’re more than doubling the capacity of the visitor car park at the village entrance from the current 200 parks and are encouraging visitors to use that.

But we also want to amend our Parking Control Bylaw to allow one of these two main options we’re considering to restrict parking on residential streets and berms. Either:

  • Make all Hahei streets, including berms, resident-only parking from October to April.
  • No parking allowed on entire streets or on parts of streets, including berms, with no exemptions for residents, by way of broken yellow lines.

We want your feedback on these proposals so we get it right.
Have your say from 10 August to 10 September.
