Concern at secret parking meters proposal
I'm writing to express my concern at the secret parking meters proposal for the Peninsula put forward by council staff (Peninsula News 515).
Council released a car parking study and implementation plan last year for public consultation.
No mention was made of parking meters.
If council want to introduce this, then the administrator needs to obtain community consultation first, much like has occurred with the projected rate rise.
I've got no problem at all with parking meters provided each bedroom per household is provided with a parking exemption permit for anyone in the 2256 and 2257 post codes. Eg a three-bedroom house gets three parking permits.
No resident on the Peninsula should have to pay to park in the foreshore areas.
Slug tourists. They're the ones creating the rubbish and using ratepayers facilities free of charge.
