Bike parking policy

Per district plan for private developments.  On-street Bike Parking is being installed as part of the rebuild and new street-scaping projects.  The CCC Parking Unit is now tasked with bi-annual cycle parking survey to update information on usage/ condition/ so this on-street/ publically available provision level can be monitored/ information updated on website/ for future planning.  In the June 2018 Long Term Plan a budget for increased public bike parking was proposed.

Bike parking in the District Plan

Bike parking requirements are clearly defined in the district plan.

Event bike parking

CCC can loan bike parking to event organisers and provide bike parking at council run events.

The Snap Send Solve app works by identifying the location the photo is taken using the phone’s GPS data.

It sends an email to the Council from your email address, including the incident type, notes, address of incident, photo, and contact details.

Find out how to download the app.

Requesting Bike Parking – The Process

Raising a request will initiate a discussion about the requirements.

Council are rolling out bike parking not only over the central city as the rebuild progresses but also alongside many suburban shopping centres with several including pumps and tools.

In order to establish general parking funds council are currently working through identifying local cycle network projects for their Long Term Plan from July 2018 – 2028. There is a likelihood that this process could prioritise some funding for this – the internal draft will be completed by October with the final version post public consultation and Council adoption in June 2018.
