If you design, manage or approve car parking spaces, you need to make sure that some are accessible to people with disabilities. Find out why they are needed and how they should be designed.
This information is about providing car parking spaces that are suitable for use by people with disabilities, particularly wheelchair users and others with mobility aids. It has been written mainly for off-street car parking associated with buildings or building complexes, but the general requirements also apply to stand-alone municipal car parks.
Barrier Free New Zealand Trust and MBIE have jointly written this guide. It includes guidance from the Trust on locating and managing accessible car parks.
