Christchurch City Council Car Parking

Mr M P Ross made this Official Information request to Christchurch City Council

This request has an unknown status. We're waiting for Mr M P Ross to read a recent response and update the status.

From: Mr M P Ross

Dear Christchurch City Council,

In a recent article in the Press, The mayor Lianne Dalziel was quoted as saying that "Free Parking is not free" and "she was not convinced of the initiative's value" of the 1 hour of free parking in the at Christchurch City Council's Lichfield St and Art Gallery car parks. (https://www.stuff.co.nz/the-press/news/1...)

In regards to the above under the Official Information Act, could you please answer the following questions.

1) How much does the Council or Mayor Dalziel pay for her mayoral carpark per hour at The Christchurch City Council (C.C.C.) Herford Street Complex?

2) How much do each of the C.C.C. Councilors pay per hour for their designated car parks at The C.C.C. Herford Street Complex?

3) How much do staff members with C.C.C. Fleet vehicles pay per hour at The C.C.C. Herford Street Complex?

4) Do C.C.C. Fleet Vehicles have to pay for parking; if parked on the road where meters are in place in the CBD and throughout Christchurch on public roads that are metered?

5) What was the total cost of parking and road infringements in the past 2 years for CCC Fleet Vehicles, and were they paid for by the C.C.C. or individual staff?
5a) Of those infringements that were paid for or waived by the C.C.C., what is the total dollar value of this (Paid + Waived), if staff were made to pay their own infringements
5b) What is the percentage of Council staff having infringements waived to those paid, compared to non staff members (members of the public)?

6) What was the estimated cost of building the carpark in the C.C.C. Herford Street Complex?

7) If the mayor believes that it is "difficult to assess how many extra people had come into town as result of the free parking", how will the Christchurch City Council determine how many more people have come into the entire CBD, based on a $130,000 marketing campaign, $80,000 for small scale events and another $70,000 employing an "activation co-ordinator"?

Yours faithfully,

Mr M P Ross
