from the KCDC on fines issued to council carpark overstayers in Mahara Place 10 Thursday May 2018 Posted by Waikanae watchers in Uncategorized ≈ 6 Comments Concern expressed by some at the time of the changes last September that the 30-minute parks in some of this area were another revenue grab by the council seems to have been unfounded. Still, you wonder how often a patrol is made. Share this:ShareTwitterPinterestFacebookPrintEmailLike this:Like Loading... Related

Short term parking has been easier since the changes were made although there are still times when it just sin’t possible to find a carpark. One wonders what Council has in mind to cater for the growth due to Waikanae North, Ngarara, Kohkohe Park, Kapiti Estate and all of the smaller infill developments over the next 2-3 years especially for increased demand for train commuter parking.
Easy, Regional council just puts a small daily parking charge on its car parks. Would also help to keep the rates down too
Charging for parking does nothing to increase supply. And knowing our council it would cost them more to collect any chrge than they’d raise in fees!
What it probably needs is a multi storey parking building developed and run by a commercial operator. Council could then subsidise to the value of what parking currently costs us as a community, i.e. the commuter parking currently available is paid for from our rates so that it is free to users.
I can’t see that happening any time soon.

Something not quite right here. I guess the Council is making a distinction between fines and parking offences which to the general public mean the same. There certainly will be more than $27 collected in parking offences.

It would surprise us if there have only been 3 parking tickets issued in 12 months around there, of which one was waived.
It wouldn’t be surprising if the carparks aren’t monitored regularly. I’m not there all day, every day but I’ve never seen a parking inspector.
