The city council has assured it won’t happen after an online backlash caused by a misunderstanding.

The map was part of its draft suburban car parking policy. City council head of planning and strategic transport David Griffiths said it has no plans to bring meters in. “It is correct we are reviewing how to manage suburban parking across the city, but the introduction of on-street parking charges would only be considered if an area is having significant parking issues,” he said. Mr Griffiths said the city council does not consider New Brighton to have parking issues. •Turn to page 3 STAY WELL NATURALLY GO VIR-DEFENCE offers powerful immune support this winter with its nine clinically proven ingredients.
