The scheme will include building 600 new affordable homes, a street market with up to 220 stalls, and a new cultural quarter around the antiques market and Cockpit Theatre.

Councils make £819m from parking charges, says RAC study

English councils generated £819m from parking fees and fines in 2016-17, an increase of 10% on the previous year, a study has suggested.

This figure represents income from parking charges and penalty notices with running costs deducted.

Many of the highest totals were seen in London, with the largest in Westminster, which had a surplus of £73.2m.

The RAC Foundation, which carried out the research, said motorists should ask how their council spends the cash.

The Local Government Association said parking charge surpluses were spent on "essential transport projects".

Income collected by the 353 English local authorities was up 6% and costs rose 2% compared with 2015-16, when the surplus was £744m.
