Parking is free in Whangarei until 1 June, just to make things a little easier as we all get used to COVID-19 Level 2.
While there are no fees, we do need drivers to stick to the parking time limits – that way people getting to the shops for the first time in weeks will be able to find parking.
We don’t want anyone parking all day in a limited parking time zone outside shops – that would not be in the spirit of the fee-free fortnight, so our wardens will be keeping an eye on time limits and delivery zones.
Hi neighbours, the next issue of Get Growing will now be released early next week, so keep your eyes peeled! In the meantime you can read all previous editions here, so dig in and enjoy!

But MP Shane Jones says this is just "snobbery" by Aucklanders against Northland, and most of the transportation will be done by rail. What do you think?
