Less park­ing not the an­swer

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

Kapi Mana News (De­cem­ber 2) showed an artist’s im­pres­sion of a re­vised Cob­ham Court.

Less than two years ago, Porirua City Coun­cil ad­vised the in­tro­duc­tion of park­ing me­ters was re­quired be­cause there were not enough short-term car park spa­ces in the city.

The artist’s im­pres­sion shows the coun­cil’s plan to get more shop­pers into the CBD is to re­duce the num­ber of car park spa­ces in Cob­ham Court.

How does that help re­tail­ers and other busi­nesses in the CBD?

I as­sume the coun­cil will off­set the re­duc­tion in car park spa­ces by in­tro­duc­ing park­ing me­ters in Cob­ham Court, to re­duce av­er­age stay times.
