Motorists visiting Ilkeston and Long Eaton town centres can now transfer their pay and display tickets between certain car parks.

Notices in the car parks that are part of the scheme can be seen on the tariff boards alongside the pay and display machines. The boards are marked with two categories - a blue circle, and a red square. Tickets can be transferred between car parks within each of these categories.

The notice boards now show the car parks that can shoppers can switch between. In Ilkeston they include short stay car parks, such as the Albion Centre and Club Row, and red square long stay car parks such as East Street.

Councillor Barbara Harrison, Erewash Borough Council’s lead member for environment, said:“This is more good news as 2015 gets underway and is another clear example of our commitment to helping boost trade within our town centres and to making it easier for shoppers to explore.”
