Motorists advised of revised parking charges

Changes are being made to the Borough Council car parking charges, including the introduction of evening charges in the majority of Borough's Pay and Display Car Parks. It follows a decision made by Council earlier this year to ensure a sustainable future for the car parks in Amber Valley.

People using the car parks from Wednesday October 5 are being urged to take special note of the signs in the car parks to make sure they're aware of the new tariffs which also include an extension of the disabled parking provision in short stay car parks from two hours to three hours.

Amber Valley residents are reminded that a free permit can be obtained which allows parking for free in all the car parks from 4pm until 8am each day (10am in Heanor) and all day Sunday.

Councillor Jack Brown MBE, Cabinet Member for Green and Thriving Places to Live said: "The overall revised charges, which were approved by Council in February this year are aimed at reducing congestion near to the more well used car parks whilst encouraging the use of the under utilised car parks. The income will ensure that the car parks are sustainable for the long term. I'd urge people who are used to parking in the evenings to look at the signs so they know the revised charges."

Notes to editors: Amber Valley residents can obtain permits by  taking their vehicle log book  to any town centre office.
