Water restrictions have been introduced in Christchurch to ensure there are enough supplies to fight fires.

The ban, the lowest of four levels, means water cannot be used outside between 3pm and 9pm, with use of hoses, sprinklers and garden irrigation systems allowed only on alternate days.

Parking fees hike mooted for central Christchurch

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

The city council has proposed increasing the cost of on-street metered parking by almost a third, from $3.10 an hour to $4.

The city council has proposed increasing the cost of on-street metered parking by almost a third, from $3.10 an hour to $4.

Under the current pricing structure, people using a credit or debit card pay $3.10 per hour and a card fee of 50 cents, totalling $3.60. The proposed $4 an hour would see the council absorb the card fee, a move that would cost the authority $300,000 a year but be recouped by the increased hourly rate.

In central Auckland motorists pay $5 an hour for the first two hours on weekdays, then $10 an hour; Wellington drivers pay $4.50 an hour.

What do you think of the rise? Fair enough or will it deter you from visiting the CBD? Read the full story here and tell us what you think in the comments below.

I spoke to the Ministry of Education about this early last year but didn’t have much of a response. Does anyone know of any preschools I’m missing out or any home based educators in these blank areas?
Any other ways we can bring this up?

Thank you
