Aucklanders will get an extra month to speak up about parking issues.

After requests from politicians, business groups and the public, Auckland Transport (AT) is extending online submissions to the parking discussion document until July 31.

The Auckland Council-controlled organisation wants feedback on its proposals for a unified approach to Auckland's parking requirements and principles.

The 60-page document contains controversial ideas such as charging for park-and-ride facilities and introducing permit-only off-street parking.

Auckland councillor and regional strategy and policy committee chairman George Wood said AT's extension was a good decision.

"I don't think people have got their heads around the document yet," he said.

Transport Blog commentator Matt Lowrie said: "It's worthwhile making sure they get all the views, but they need to explain the issues better. They can't just leave it up to the 60-page document."
