Parking restrictions amended for Hahei

31 October 2018

We’re making a few changes to parking restrictions in Hahei to better cope with the large number of visitors over the summer.

The changes will:

  • Make the car parks outside the Hahei store 60-minute timed parking;
  • Make the car parks on Hahei Beach Rd outside the store a stop for the Cathedral Cove shuttle bus between 1 October and 30 April and 60-minute timed parking the rest of the year;
  • Create a drop-off only zone at the beach-front end of Hahei Beach Rd;
  • And, create two mobility car parks directly opposite the beach access. The changes will take effect from Thursday 20 December 2018.

These changes take place through amendments to our Parking Control Bylaw and were signed off by our Council this week. Check the locations on the diagrams below.

The amendments were well supported in the public feedback we received during the August-September consultation we held on the review of the bylaw, and by submitters speaking to our elected members at the Council hearing on the bylaw review on 8 October.

If you’re visiting Hahei, we encourage you to park in the visitor car park at the entrance to Hahei. Once again this summer, we’ve teamed up with Go Kiwi to provide a park and ride shuttle service from this car park to the start of the Cathedral Cove walking track at the top of Grange Rd. It is currently free to park at the Hahei Visitor Car Park.

From 1 October to 30 April every year the car park at the top of Grange Rd is drop-off only, with the exception of two four-hour time limit mobility parking spaces and a drop-off zone for bus concession holders. This car park is closed outside of daylight hours and freedom camping is prohibited.
