This picture of a well known Wellingtonian should not be too difficult. What do you remember about her?
The Wellington City Council is proposing to extend paid parking hours in the CBD by two to four hours every night, as it continues its push to reduce the number of private vehicles on the capital’s streets.
The change would apply to about 3300 central city parking spaces, and is another clear message to motorists to leave their cars at home as the council looks to free up road space and manage demand.
If approved by councillors on June 30 as part of the council’s 10-year plan, paid parking hours would be extended to 8pm from Sunday to Thursday, and 10pm on Friday and Saturday.
What do you think? Is it a good idea
