INCOME from parking charges in Chesterfield should be made public before changes to fees are implemented, opposition councillors have urged.

Chesterfield Council is altering its pricing from April 1, as part of its budget approved last week.

Opposition Lib Dem leader, Councillor Ray Russell, said: “When we were in power, parking charge reports were public. This enabled the Press, public and non-executive councillors to see the reports, and to scrutinise both the charges and related conditions properly.”
