Concern over free car park

LEADING councillors are set to be grilled at a meeting tonight (Thursday) over the maintenance of an Ilkeston car park.

The Tories removed parking charges from Brussels Terrace car park last year in a bid to boost trade at the bottom of town.

Cllr John Frudd will ask at the Erewash Borough Council meeting for an assurance that the car park, off Bath Street, ‘will be maintained to exactly the same standard as other car parks where charges still remain’.

See next week’s Advertiser for the response.
