It will become harder for workers commuting into Auckland’s CBD to find free all-day 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 (RPZ) between Mt Eden Rd and Dominion Rd. The two-hour parking time-restriction in these areas applies from Monday to Friday between 8am and 6pm. Residents within the RPZ would be able to apply for permits at a cost $70 per year or one-day coupons for $5.
