Parking on footpaths

The page lists streets where you can park your car with two wheels on the footpath.

Dunedin has a lot of narrow streets where it is impractical to have parking on both sides of the road. It is important emergency vehicles can access these streets, but we recognise that residents and their visitors should be able to park near their homes.

In 2007, we assessed narrow road sections around Dunedin city. Following this assessment, we designated 22 sections of road where parking on the footpath is allowed.

Vehicles parked on the footpath can block pedestrians, often forcing them into the road to pass the vehicle. This is of particular concern for people with pushchairs or people with mobility or vision impairments.

If you are concerned about a vehicle illegally parked on the footpath, phone us on 03 477 4000.
