Another increase is the over three-hour rate at Bridgford Road which increases by 50% from £20 to £30.

A Rushcliffe Borough Council spokesperson said: “The majority of motorists who use our car parks for two hour stays or less will see a small 20p increase in parking charges from May 1.

“This is the first increase in seven years and the Council has sustained the increase in costs in operating car parks for a considerable period. The new tariffs are still competitive when compared with other busy towns and cities in the region.

“Any charges at our car parks are re-invested back into facilities that ensure they are safe and attractive with maintenance on lighting, resurfacing, ticket machines and improvements such as the highly popular RingGo service and electric charging points.

“As part of this ongoing investment this means the majority of our car parks are also regularly awarded the Safer Car Park accreditation.”

Visits to Nottingham city currently cost around £5.50 for up to 2 hours car parking and £7.50 up to 4 hours.
