Fee changes coming as new budget is introduced

Christchurch City Council Newsline: 29th June 2021

Fees and charges for some Christchurch City Council-run services and facilities will change over the coming months.

The fee changes were signalled earlier this year when Christchurch City Council consulted the public on its 2021-31 Long Term Plan.

Some hireage fees for community facilities will change from 1st July 2021.

“We have simplified our criteria for how we charge for using these facilities after feedback from the public. We will contact our regular hirers directly with information about how this will affect them," says Council Head of Community Support, Governance and Partnerships John Filsell.

Fees for on-street metered parking in Christchurch’s city centre will rise to $4.50 an hour from 12 July. It is the first increase since the 2011/12 financial year.

However, at the same time credit card transaction fees will be removed from all Council on-street parking meters.

“We are increasing our metered on-street parking fees to bring them more into line with Auckland, Wellington and Dunedin where the cost of on-street parking in the heart of the CDB is generally between $4 and $5 an hour,’’ says Council Traffic Operations Manager Steffan Thomas.

Fees are also increasing at the two Council-owned parking buildings in the city centre.

At the Lichfield Street parking building the hourly parking will rise from $2.80 to $4 for those parking between the hours of 6am and 6pm. The hourly night-time rate will increase from $2.50 to $3.50. This is the first fee increase at the Lichfield Street parking building since it opened in 2017. The all day rate of $15 will remain unchanged.

At the Christchurch Art Gallery carpark, the parking fee will go up to $2 per half hour.

From Sunday 1st August He Puna Taimoana, New Brighton’s hot salt water pools, will introduce peak pricing at weekend sessions, evening sessions from 5.30pm and during school and public holidays. These sessions will cost an extra $1. Off-peak sessions and member pricing will remain the same.

In October some charges at Council-owned recreation and sport facilities will change slightly. For example, the cost of going for a swim will increase by 10 cents for a child, by 30 cents for an adult, and by 80 cents for a family of four.

“We will be providing our regular customers with more information about how the pricing changes might affect them nearer to the time," says Council Head of Recreation, Sports and Events Nigel Cox.
