Nottingham City Council have defended plans to introduce a system to pay for parking by mobile phone, arguing it is used successfully around the country.
The proposals have been criticised by the Nottingham Elders' Forum as 'discriminatory' towards older people.
The pay by phone system we are proposing is used extensively with great success throughout the country.
However if there are concerns, we are currently consulting on this proposal and will happily listen to what people have to say.
It's also important to note that residents and visitors of residents in these areas will not have to pay any charges at all.
