Parking plans 'disgusting' says Elders' Forum

The Nottingham Elders' Forum have described Council plans to introduce methods to pay for parking by mobile phone as 'disgusting'.

Nottingham City Council is consulting about the proposals and argues the payment system is used successfully around the country.

I think it is disgusting, particularly in a city that is supposed to be age friendly.

Many older people out there don't have mobile phones. Others don't have cards as they are worried about getting into debt.

So what are they meant to do?

They are only bringing it in three streets at first, but I'm sure they will eventually roll it out even further.

– Glenise Martin, secretary of the Nottingham Elders' Forum
