Charity Parking Meters – “Change for Charity”

Countries around the world have reinvigorated their old parking meters, repurposing them to provide people an opportunity to donate their small change to charity.

The old parking meters are decorated by artists, celebrities or students and are placed in high traffic areas so as to attract donations.

Council has around 20 old meters that can be used for such a purpose, raising funds for local charities.

It’s great that Council has included this concept in their draft 2016 Parking Strategy which is now on public exhibition until 11th February for public comment, with Council set to formally consider and adopt the strategy at its February meeting.
