Nottingham parking levy to increase to £334

Business leaders are warning that Nottingham's workplace parking levy risks deterring more businesses from setting up in the city.

It's almost a year since the city council introduced the charge for companies with more than eleven car parking spaces.

Next week, it will rise from £280, to £334 per space. The council is using the tax to pay for the extention to the city tram system.
