|Lancashire County Council has made clear that new parking meters will not be installed in any district where the local district or borough council does not want them.
|A draft proposal to introduce more on-street pay and display parking throughout Lancashire was outlined in a recent report to the county council’s cabinet.
It was also discussed last week at a regular meeting of the leaders and chief executives of Lancashire’s councils where the county council and all 12 district and borough councils are represented.
An email confirming this is being sent to district and borough council leaders and chief executives as not all were present at the meeting.
There is currently only on-street pay and display parking in Lancaster and Preston, where it is used to help manage parking in busy areas by offering convenient short-term spaces, and ensure turnover of parking availability where there is high demand.
