Paid Parking:where to from here?
You will have heard by now that the paid parking trail in Railway Tce South has failed. This has failed as a portion of the land used for parking is owned by DPTI as part of the tram reserve. DPTI have been aware of Council's plans to introduce paid parking and yet left it to the last minute to embarrass Council staff on this matter. The Trial in Bartley Cres remains active. This is unlikely to ease the increased pressure that residents in Aroha Tce are experiencing for parking spaces as the 4 hour parking limits will remain. Staff at Goodwood Primary School have also been allowed to overstay the parking restrictions near the school which has upset a few people as well. Council has yet to decide a way forward on the trial.
