How affordable is travel within NZ?

Hi everyone, I'm Lorna, a Stuff travel reporter. We're doing a story on how affordable travel within NZ is. For those of you who have travelled within the country post-lockdown, we'd like to hear whether you've been able to find suitable flights, accommodation and activities within your budget. Do you think accommodation providers and tourism operators are doing enough to entice New Zealanders to explore their backyard? Please let us know in the comments below, your message may be used in our story.

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

Nicole Mathewson Reporter from The Press

About 64 hectares of land – equivalent to 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.
