New time limits for city centre on-street parking.
There is now a two-hour time limit (P120) to park on the street in the Tauranga city centre. The two-hour time limit applies to all streets between Harington Street and Second Avenue, except where P15, P30 and P60 spaces are signposted.
Time restrictions for on-street parking now applies Monday to Saturday, 8am – 4pm.
Parking signs will be updated progressively over the next couple of weeks. Parking officers will start enforcing the two-hour time limit in each street as the parking signs are updated to P120.
