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.

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.
