Make room for coaches

Matamata Chronicle - - News/opinion -

Does Mata­mata want the tourists?

Re­cently and on other oc­ca­sions I have been to Rail­side by the Green to pick up my wife from her vol­un­tary duty at the Ci­ti­zens Ad­vice Bureau. On Jan­uary 29 there were four large coaches parked on the rail­side green.

Why doesn’t the Mata­mata Pi­ako District Coun­cil put in an­gle park­ing on the green that is sim­i­lar to bus de­pots?

It is a ter­ri­ble green to say the least, and does not ap­pear to put Mata­mata in good light (not a green lawn).

The other day I had to ask the driver of a camper­van to move on to the green as its tail stuck out into road­way (not al­lowed in the He­tana park­ing area any more).

I know that the An­nual Sculp­ture Sym­po­sium is held on the green but does this want all the green, the coaches come through­out the year.
