Mobility Parking

The mobility parking scheme provides specific parking spaces and other parking privileges for people with disabilities. Rotorua has at least 2 mobility parks per street in the Rotorua Central District (CBD).

The only people who may use mobility parks are those who display current permits. Parking enforcement officers will issue a $150 infringement notice to anyone using a mobility park without a clearly displayed current permit.

Mobility card holders can use dedicated mobility spaces for as long as they want without paying. All other car parks can be used by mobility card holders, without having to pay, for double the amount of time specified (except P15 spaces which are limited to the time​frames specified and are intended for quick pick up and drop offs). If no time limit is specified, mobility card holders may park in this space for as long as they require without having to pay. Ensure that your valid mobility permit is clearly displayed. 

For permits: Visit Rotorua Lakes Council or contact CCS Disability Action which administers the mobility parking scheme and issues permits.

Phone 0800 227 2255 or visit www.mobilityparking.org.nz
