Revised parking fees leave gap in Nottingham council budget

A change to Nottingham City Council's plans to increase parking charges in the city centre has left a £220,000 shortfall in its annual budget.

The authority had planned to introduce a 70p-per-half-hour rate for Sundays and evenings on several roads around the city, from April.

This was revised to a £1 flat-fee, following complaints from church leaders and traders.

The council said savings would have to be found elsewhere.

Deputy leader, Graham Chapman, said: "It is going to cost £220,000 just making that reduction so I'm having to look at alternative ways of funding it.

"But it is probably the right decision and we've got to hold our hands up to that."
