"More people are walking up to the summit, and so to manage parking and driving up this narrow, windy road, we are encouraging people, and tour bus operators, to park at the memorial reserve car park," says Bob Renton, Community Board Chair for Tairua-Pauanui. Space for 17 car parks has now been made available compared with 8 previously at the memorial reserve carpark. You can read the full parking report from the meeting here.
