B&M car park enforcement ‘will help council make money’


A senior councillor says the ticketing and enforcement of cars using the B&M Bargains car park in Boston will help the council make more money from its facilities.

Coun Derek Richmond spoke about a possible shortfall in car parking cash at last Wednesday’s cabinet meeting.

A financial report drawn up for members showed that the authority believes its revenue from car parks will be £14,000 lower than budgeted.

However, Coun Richmond said he expected that number should ‘just about put itself right’ by the end of the year now people could no longer park for free at B&M Bargains.

He said: “I think that is moving people back into our car parks. I think it could make quite a dent on the prediction.”
