Hednesford's Rugeley Road Car Park to have restrictions
18th November 2013
... Comments

This restriction has been devised so that shoppers and leisure userâs needs are prioritised. The car park remains free to use up to this four hour maximum. The four hour restriction is being put in place to prevent people from leaving their car parked all day in this car park.

Cannock Chase Council will introduce a parking order on the Councilâs section of the car park, to impose a four hour maximum stay and the parking order is due to come into effect on 9th December 2013. The restriction will operate between 8am and 3pm Monday to Saturday, excluding Bank Holidays. Anybody parking for more than four hours from this date may be subject to a penalty notice.

The arrangements would be subject to regular monitoring for the maximum benefit of shoppers. Aldi will be introducing a similar arrangement based on the four hour maximum stay for the section of the car park that is under their management and will also be keeping this under review to ensure their customer needs are being met.

Councillor Carl Bennett, Portfolio Leader for the Environment said "We have worked closely with Aldi to come up with a solution that suits all concerned and benefits to the town and its traders."

Councillor Diane Todd, Portfolio Leader for Town Centre Regeneration said "It is important as part of the town centre regeneration that the car park is used for its intended purpose as a short term shopper's car park and for leisure use."
