TRADERS are hopeful that plans to make parking free at the bottom of Bath Street will bring more shoppers to the ‘deserted’ bottom of town.

Leader of the council Cllr Chris Corbett told the Advertiser this week that nearly £15,000 saved by axing three out of four scrutiny committees will be used to remove charges from Brussels Terrace car park.

And he pledged that the Tory ruling group at Erewash Borough Council plans to one day make every one of its car parks in the town free.
