New developments in Darlington town centre mean that new parking spaces will be needed, the council has said.

The council is considering how much should be provided, its location and price, and ways of ensuring people can park close to their homes.

Residents and businesses have been invited to fill in a questionnaire or attend a series of drop in sessions.

The town centre plans include a new cinema complex and the relocation of the Department for Education offices.

Councillor David Lyonette, cabinet member for transport said: "Although these developments will result in the creation of more jobs and bring great economic benefit, we will need to build new car parks to replace lost spaces and meet the need for more parking.

"I hope that everyone will take the time to have their say and help us formulate a final strategy which will benefit as many people as possible."
