AT chief executive defends changes to parking in Auckland CBD

Auckland Transport's Chief Executive says changes to parking in the CBD are to give ratepayers relief.

From July, motorists will have to pay 24/7 for parking, much of which was previously free on Sundays and outside 8am and 6pm.

Dean Kimpton says the move was made to create the $74 million in savings that the Council has requested of it.

He says that's alongside improving public transport.

"This is what growing cities do. This is what we will do with any income we receive. We will look to make that transport safe and more frequent."
