Just over 114,000 free one hour tickets were issued in the first two months of Erewash Borough Council’s free parking scheme in its town centre car parks, the authority has revealed.

The figure is a 40,000 increase on tickets issued in the same period last year on the free 30-minute scheme. Free one hour parking was introduced in car parks in Ilkeston and Long Eaton in January as a six-month trial.
