Waitaki District Council has decided to extend time-limited free parking right thorough Covid Level 2 to encourage local shopping.
Mayor for Waitaki, Gary Kircher said, “We want to ensure our wonderful Waitaki businesses can bounce back as best as possible from this Covid lockdown, so making shopping easier is one of the ways that Council can support them. We have had free parking during Level 4, then 3, and we want to extend that benefit into Level 2. With time-limited free parking, people will have even more opportunity to support our local businesses!”
The two-hour limit will be enforced, so people are asked to be considerate of others and let everyone enjoy shopping local. Also of note, parking is free after 5.30 pm and on Sundays if people want to utilise Oamaru’s fantastic hospitality businesses.
