About 64 hectares of land – equivalent to 40 per cent of Hagley Park – is dedicated to parking within Christchurch’s four avenues.

About 64 hectares of land – equivalent to 40 per cent of Hagley Park – is dedicated to parking within Christchurch’s four avenues.

Questions are now being asked if more than 35,000 parking spaces is too many, especially given transport is the city’s largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and the Christchurch City Council has a goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2045.

While the number of on-street parks has reduced, the number of off-street parking spaces in central Christchurch has doubled in five years and there are more than 200 vacant sites in the central city that have become car parks.

What do you think - does Christchurch have too many car parks, or is car parking in the CBD hard to find or too expensive? Read the full story here and tell us what you think in the comments below.
