Pay by plate parking meters coming to Hamilton

‘Smart’ parking meters are hitting the streets of the Hamilton CBD but despite the change concerns remain about how many city parks are being managed.

The phasing out of the coin-operated system by the end of the month was long overdue, Vanessa Williams, general manager at Hamilton Central Business Association said.

The ‘pay by plate’ method was similar to new machines seen in Rotorua city centre.

The previous system was “a very outdated and old fashioned way of paying for parking, [council] needed to go to smart meters probably long before they actually have.”
