The Council’s 2015 Christchurch Central Parking Plan identified the need for a new off-street parking building, or buildings, in the area north of Cathedral Square to help meet the demand for public parking in the area.

The proposed car park building will service existing and planned facilities north of Cathedral Square, including Te Pae (Convention Centre), Tῡranga, The Court Theatre, Isaac Theatre Royal and The Piano.

The Crown transferred the land to the Council in 2020 as part of the global settlement agreement, with the expectation that a parking building would be built there to help serve the Performing Arts Precinct.

The address of the land is 137-141 Gloucester Street.  The legal description of the land is ‘Lot 1 Deposited Plan 30037 (part), Lot 1 Deposited Plan 1665 (part), Lot 1 Deposited Plan 1858 (part), Lot 1 Deposited Plan 6294 (part), Lot 2 Deposited Plan 1665 (part). The attached map shows the land parcel.

We are consulting under Section 138 of the Local Government Act
