Council lowers car park season ticket

DRIVERS using Victoria Street car park in Kimberley are being offered a reduced season ticket rate.

After Kimberley town councillor Melissa Crow submitted a petition against the charges, Broxtowe Borough Council decided to lower the quarterly season ticket rate from £125 per quarter to £40.

Local councillors have been campaigning to get the charges removed saying the car park is too small for it to be economically viable.

Parking charges across the borough will be reviewed in June.
