This petition is in response to the Whangarei District Councillors voting to introduce parking charges at our beautiful Whangarei Town Basin. The charge will be $2 per hour 7 days a week. There will be a very limited number of free parking in front of the children's playground but it has a time limit of an hour. 

The impact of parking charges will affect the businesses in that area, families, loop walkers etc. To spend 2-3 hours  - walking the loop then stopping for a coffee, having brunch/lunch/dinner at one of the fantastic cafes and restaurants, or spending time with the kids at the playground then having a snack - will add $4-$6 on top of any other money spent. This fabulous area (funded by rate payers) was created for our community's enjoyment and should remain free to be enjoyed by all.

Please sign this petition to ensure that your voice is heard  - NO to parking charges at the Town Basin!

Thank you
