Christchurch City Council’s draft 10-year budget outlines an intention to increase on-street parking from July from $3.10 an hour to $4.50 – a 45 per cent increase.

The cost to park at the council’s Lichfield St car park building could also rise from $2.80 an hour to $4 – a 43 per cent increase. The rate at the Art Gallery car park could double from $2 an hour to $4.

In a bid to cut operating costs the council is also proposing to reduce library hours, permanently shut the mobile library and close the Akaroa and Lyttelton service centres, as well as the Riccarton Rd bus lounges.

The average Christchurch ratepayer could be an extra $250 a year out of pocket if steep regional council rate hikes thought to be one among the highest in the country are brought in.
