Changes to Car Parking

Changes to Bell Street Car Park - this is a statement from East Herts District Council to explain some recent queries

Parents or guardians using Bell Street Car Park to deliver and collect children from nearby schools will still be able to use the free parking period offered by East Herts Council. The rule prohibiting motorists from obtaining a second or subsequent free ticket on the same day has been relaxed to allow separate free tickets to be obtained in the morning and in the afternoon.  Motorists will still have to enter their vehicle registration number at the machine on each occasion.
