Free parking in Whangarei until June 1.

The Team from Whangarei District Council

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.

Do you think moving Ports of Auckland north will be practical?

Denise Piper Reporter from Whangarei Leader

A report by the National Road Carriers Association has found moving Ports of Auckland north to Northport would be impractical, prohibitively expensive and increase truck trips between Northland and Auckland. 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?
