Coventry city centre parking fees reduced

Car parking charges in Coventry are being reduced while work is under way on a £7m package of improvements across the city centre.

The changes only affect some car parks, but it will mean cheaper parking every Saturday from November to June 2012.

Linda Bigham, cabinet member for city development, said she hoped the measures would encourage shopping.

Some council-owned car parks will also be free after 16:00 on Wednesdays in the build up to Christmas.
