Parking charges in Nottingham coule be changing for the third time in a year after shop and restaurant owners said restrictions were forcing them out of business.
Councillors in Nottingham have decided to abolish maximum stay times for on street parking in the city centre.
It will now cost one pound for thirty minutes in the heart of the city during peak hours, and one pound for the whole day for people parking outside of the centre.
It's after a campaign by business owners in the city after a number of shops closed in the Hockley area earlier this year.
The council says it's now worked with businesses to simplify the parking charges and restrictions to give shoppers and visitors more flexibility and to encourage them to spend more time in town.
Councillor Nick McDonald said:
Jeff Allen, who represents businesses in the city as Chairman of the Retail BID, welcomed the new proposals.
The council says there will now be a period of consultation about the proposed changes, which could be in place by the Autumn.
