There will be changes for a controversial market town car park after it changed hands.
North Norfolk district council have taken the place of National Parking Enforcement (NPE) as operational managers for the Miller’s Walk car park in Fakenham.
The car park on Whitehorse Street became a hot topic in the town after a number of parking fines were disputed.
John Rest, Fakenham South councillor and leader of the Independent Group of North Norfolk District Council, said: “NNDC are pleased to have secured the contract to manage this public car park at Millers Walk.
“There will be slight operational differences with this site, so I urge members of the public to familiarise themselves with the notice.”
