Support Herne Bay Petanque Club parking

Waitemata Board plans to block all parking to the Herne Bay Petanque Club in the Salisbury Reserve.  It necessary to keep this parking to access HBPC by petanque players locally, nationally and internationally; Ponsonby Probus, U3A Ponsonby and other groups using the HBPC clubhouse.

There is inadequate parking in the area for the number of members attending these events.  The distance from the nearest street is >200m which is too far for members whose average age would be 70.

Salisbury Reserve covers a large area with children's playground, unused grass spaces, large flat grassed area - formerly 4 bowling greens, and 1/3 of the area is the petanque piste.  The area currently used for parking is a relatively small area down a bank from the flat area.  It is not valid space for anything other than parking.

There is no logical reason to remove this vital access to the HBPC for the hundreds of members who need it.
