Changes to on-street parking in Northampton town centre have come into operation from today.
The idea’s to improve the availability of parking, reduce congestion and bring consistency to the service across the town.
There are now on-street charges from 7am to 7pm seven days a week with one-hour bays becoming two-hour.
Other changes include additional on-street parking bays in the town centre and the introduction of four-hour bays in St John’s Street and Derngate to offer visitors more flexibility when looking to park for longer periods.
Changes also comprise new designated loading areas and disabled bays in St Giles Street and the introduction of pay and display charges for parking bays located in Abington Street.
