More Central City parking for Christmas

People heading into the City Centre to shop and celebrate over the festive season will have a range of parking options to choose from.

The Crossing

Christchurch City Council and the Carter Group are working together to provide 200 free short-term car parks to support the retail precinct.

The Carter Group will open two floors of its car park at The Crossing, providing free 2-hour car parking leading up to and over the Christmas period. The car park will close after the holiday period to be fitted out with the latest parking technology and officially open in April 2017.

Philip Carter from the Carter Group – the Christchurch business behind The Crossing – is delighted to have worked with the Council to offer free 2-hour parking.

“We are really pleased that the Central City is starting to take off and The Crossing development has been one of the major projects spearheading its revitalisation.

“We are committed to the rejuvenation of the Central City, and enabling people during business hours to park for free while they shop is one way we can support local businesses,” he said.

General Manager City Services David Adamson says: “It is expected that the additional car parking will help relieve the anticipated demand in the Central City. To ensure a thriving Central City, it’s important that people are able to access local businesses they need through multiple modes of transport.

Gordon Campbell: On The Skewed Media Coverage Of Gaza

Now that he’s back as Foreign Minister, maybe Winston Peters should start reading the MFAT website which is currently celebrating the 25th anniversary of how Kiwis alerted the rest of the world to the genocide in Rwanda. How times have changed ...

In 2023, the government is clutching its pearls because senior Labour MP Damien O’Connor has dared suggest that Gaza’s civilian population - already living under apartheid and subjected to sixteen years of an illegal embargo, and now being herded together and slaughtered indiscriminately amid the destruction of their homes, schools, mosques, and hospitals - are also victims of what amounts to genocide.

Public Housing Futures: Christmas Comes Early For Landlords

New CTU analysis of the National & ACT coalition agreement has shown the cost of returning interest deductibility to landlords is an extra $900M on top of National’s original proposal.
