Favourite discoveries on NZ travels

Lorna Thornber Reporter from Stuff Travel

Hi everyone,
We'd be keen to hear about your discoveries on your recent travels around New Zealand. Were there any small towns, activities or attractions that surprised you, for better or for worse? Did you come across any lesser-know spots you think more Kiwis should check out? Which small towns do you think deserve more visitors than they get? Please remember your comment may be included in an article unless you state that you don't want it to be. Cheers.

Does Christchurch have too many car parks? The council says probably

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

About 64 hectares of land – 40 per cent of Hagley Park – is dedicated to parking within Christchurch’s four avenues.

Questions are now being asked if more than 35,000 parking spaces is too many, especially given transport is the city’s largest contributor to greenhouse gas emissions and the Christchurch City Council has a goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2045.

While the number of on-street parks has reduced, the number of off-street parking spaces in central Christchurch has doubled in five years and there are more than 200 vacant sites in the central city that have become car parks.

What do you think - does Christchurch have too many car parks, or is car parking in the CBD hard to find or too expensive? Read the full story here and tell us what you think in the comments below.
