All-day parking trial in Palmy

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 31/07/2016

Palmerston North is taking time limits off metered parking spaces.

From Monday people can park all day in spaces with $P All Day signs, though they still have to pay.

A trial of the system runs until July 2017.

Palmerston North Mayor Grant Smith is hoping it'll bring more people into the city centre, helping retailers and other businesses.

"All day parks will be clearly marked with new signage and updated information at the meters," says roading manager Graeme Tong.

There will be a choice of up to eight payment options.

An earlier trial of free parking in metered spaces until 11am on Saturday mornings is now permanent.
