"for now" means the same as "for the present".

For sentence 2. it's irrelevant whether you or the
Surrey parks manager can see a solution in the future. He is still saying "for now" and leaving the future open.3. "Time will only tell"? Any paragraph that can start like this is not a good exemplar. To be honest, I'm not exactly sure what "As of now" means in 3. - maybe "now", maybe nothing. This is the problem: "as of" can mean 'now', or "from now" or "up until now". She probably means "at present", "as things stand right now". She probably doesn't mean "starting from now", which is one of the many meanings of "as of now".
