Cllr Brian Robinson, Deputy Leader of the Council and cabinet member for Efficient Council and Planning Policy said: “Permits and tickets will be able to be used by the holder which means people can share their permit in their household or place of work, helping them to get the best value for money.
“They will also be transferable between car parks meaning people can park in one town and then go on to park in other towns on the same permit or valid ticket.”
He added: “Over the next week we will be writing to everyone who took the time to respond to the consultation advising them that the order has been made, when the order comes into effect and the reasons why it has been made.”
