Council set to scrap one-hour charges at city's car parks
ONE-HOUR parking charges are set to be scrapped at Derby City Council's car parks.
Instead, people will have to pay the fee for up to two hours. This means, for instance, that the minimum charge will rise from £1.60 to £3 at the Council House car park and £1.60 to £2.30 at the Chapel Street car park.
Parking on 77 streets, including Babington Lane, Becket Street and Friar Gate, goes up by 10p.
The council says the overall changes to the parking charges were "in line with inflation". A final decision on the increases will be made at a full council meeting on Wednesday, January 30.

Paul Robinson, strategic director for neighbourhoods, said: "We do a review every year of charges. If you take the overall changes in charges, they will be in line with inflation."
If agreed, most changes would be brought in on February 11, with the exception of the removal of "up to one hour" and "two to three hours" charges in Chapel Street car park, set to be introduced on February 18.
