There is a variety of parking options in New Plymouth's CBD, from on-street to off-street and leased parking spaces.

The easy-to-use PayMyPark app enables users to pay for parking via their smartphone. Users can extend their parking time remotely, receive an alert when their paid parking is about to expire, or use the start/stop function and pay for only the parking minutes that are used.

One hour free

A winter boost of one hour of parking free in New Plymouth is one of NPDC’s Back On Our Feet measures.

The free hour applies to all NPDC metered spaces in New Plymouth and runs from 1 July to 30 September 2020.

Metered parking, includes the likes of The Warehouse, Wind Wand and Puke Ariki Off-Street parks. It does not include car parking buildings such as Downtown Carpark.

If you’re parking for less than one hour, no payment required. Just park and shop.

If you’re parking for longer than one hour you will need to pay at the meter or on the PayMyPark app for the amount of time that you want to stay beyond your free hour.

The parking meter will only show the minutes that you have paid for, but don't worry you’ve still got your extra hour of free parking.

Time limits and other restrictions still apply.
