Parking changes are in play on Granite Street and Foul Bay Road.

In the wake of a request for resident only parking, Oak Bay council opted to implement two-hour limitations during business hours.

Staff said they confirmed observations from residents about an increase in all-day parking in the vicinity of Granite Street and Foul Bay Road. Most of the surrounding area has parking restrictions to address non-resident parking; while that area had no parking restrictions.

Council agreed to alter parking regulations near the intersection of Foul Bay Road and Granite Street from unlimited parking to a two-hour parking Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. area.

A total of 20 new parking signs, at about $200 per sign, will go up.
