Free parking could come to an end in most of Cumbria as a meeting is held to discuss how to introduce charges.
Eleven towns have been deemed suitable, including Carlisle, Penrith and Workington. Cumbria Council plan to join many other counties that require payment in popular towns and cities. It's hoped that this will also reduce congestion.
The charge will be introduced due to a shortfall in the Council's budget.
