What good is 8am parking?

Unbelievable! Free parking from 8am to 10am.

What good is that to shoppers? Shops and businesses open at 9am in town.

Want to entice people to shop in Ilkeston, be more realistic, people come into town to shop, have a bite to eat.

Either 11am to 2pm, or 12midday to 3pm might be more beneficial, but not much thought has gone into the council’s initial offering.
