LOWER COST PARKING PERMITS, DELIVERED:
Increased parking in our local area is an issue I hear about often, and with urban infill, and many non resident commuters using our streets to park all day the problem is only increasing.
What can be done?
Many local streets have parking restrictions installed, in the form of 2 hour parking zones. This can be a very effective way of ensuring all day parkers do not clog our local streets.
What about residents cars?
Car park permits are available to local residents, on a single car or transferable basis, either for a single street or a local zone area.
How much do local parking permits cost?
In my view these have been previously too high, I have been working with my fellow Elected Members to lower the cost each year, earlier this year I moved that these be lowered for the second time in 2 years and from June 1 permits for residents are now down to $30 for 1 year and $50 for the 2 year permit. Pension card holders receive a 50% discount on these prices.
