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.

No NZ COVID Tracer QR poster? No business from me!

Oliver Neighbourly Lead from One Tree Point

I spent some time in Whangarei (CBD and Okara Centre) yesterday, and I noticed that very few businesses displayed an NZ COVID Tracer QR poster on their premises.
So here's my message to all the businesses in the Whangarei and Bream Bay area: If you're too complacent and indifferent to be a part of The Team and can't be bothered to invest about 5 to 10 minutes to request your poster here, print it and display it, then I can't be bothered spending my time and money at your business.
It's that simple. Really.

Springs Flat

Peter Neighbourly Lead from Kamo

Does anyone have an idea just *what* is going on with SH1 in Springs Flat? The road surface is disintegrating after recent 'resealing'. There are truckloads of loose stone chip floating around, I bet it's cost a fair few new windscreens by now (in fact I'm wondering why the insurance industry hasn't made a hue and cry about it yet!!)

It's disgraceful. Who is responsible for fixing this mess? NZTA? WDC?

But somebody really has to DO something.
