Napier City Council seeks to make provision for the mobility impaired through the provision of mobility parking spaces across the City. Napier City currently provides more than 30 on and off street spaces for those displaying a CCS or Sommerville Mobility permit (or other approved permits).
If a mobility space is not available, display of a CCS Mobility permit when parking in a standard space will allow the cardholder to park double the normally allocated time in that space up to maximum of two hours. For more information please view the CCS Disability Action website, the Mobility Parking website or Sommerville Disability Support Services website.
Note: When Parked at a metered space, you are required to pay the initial tariff.
It is always appreciated when able bodied drivers occupy a standard parking space after dropping off a person with mobility problems. This leaves more mobility spaces available for less mobile drivers.
Failure to display a current mobility permit while occupying one of these spaces may result in a infringement fine - even if you just forgot to put your card up!
