FEWER PARKS

North Harbour News - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE -

It will steadily be­come harder for work­ers com­mut­ing into Auck­land’s CBD to find free all­day park­ing - with the roll out of more res­i­den­tial only park­ing zones. St Marys Bay, Pon­sonby and Free­mans Bay were the first sub­urbs to evict work­ers look­ing for free park­ing, in­stalling 120 minute zones for every­one ex­cept per­mit-hold­ing res­i­dents. Now Par­nell, Grey Lynn and Grafton will have park­ing re­stric­tions. Mt Eden also has a res­i­den­tial park­ing zone be­tween Mt Eden Rd and Do­min­ion Rd, to­wards the city end. The twohour park­ing time-re­stric­tion in these ar­eas ap­plies from Mon­day to Fri­day be­tween 8am and 6pm. Auck­land Trans­port’s park­ing ser­vices man­ager, John Straw­bridge, said city fringe res­i­den­tial streets were of­ten over­crowded with com­muters park­ing all day. Res­i­dents within the RPZ would be able to ap­ply for per­mits at a cost $70 per year or one-day coupons for $5.
