Clarification of mobility parking permits

Parking at Dunedin Public Library

The City Library car park has 29 spaces, including two disability spaces. The standard parking charge is $2 per hour.

Disabled access to the City Library is via an entrance off this carpark, using a buzzer to alert staff to release the entrance for the customer.

Mobility parking elsewhere in Dunedin

Displaying a mobility card entitles the driver to up to one hour free in all pay-and-display carparks (including P30 spaces).

It does not allow for extra parking in P5 or P10 spaces, or for parking in other restricted parks (such as Authorised Vehicles Only, Residents’ Parks, etc).

If the driver is parking for less than one hour (in a pay-and-display carpark), no payment is required. Any time required after the first hour must be paid for.

Permits must be displayed. If the permit is not displayed, there is no right to use mobility parks or to gain the concessions.

Some mobility permit carparks and pay-and-display carparks have a time limit stated on the sign. Users must adhere to the time limits.
