Parking charges change in borough

Evening charges are to be introduced in a number of Amber Valley Borough Council’s pay and display car parks in Ripley and Heanor. It is the latest in a series of cost-cutting measures to be introduced by the authority to save £2million in two years.

People using the car parks are being urged to take special note of the signs in the car parks to make sure they are 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.

However Amber Valley residents will be able to obtain a free permit parking for free in all the car parks from 4pm until 8am each day, 10am in Heanor, and all day Sunday.
