The Nelson Street pay and display car park near Lancaster Town Hall is scheduled to be closed from Monday, September 29 until Friday, October 3 for resurfacing works.

It is the latest car park to be resurfaced as part of Lancaster City Council’s ongoing Car Parks Improvement Programme.

Earlier this month the Auction Mart car park off Thurnham Street was resurfaced and the previously unmarked car park now has lined bays, providing spaces for approximately 120 cars.

The Auction Mart car park reopened earlier this month after being closed for a week so work could take place.

Pedder Street car park in Morecambe has also been earmarked for improvement work, scheduled to begin in September with a completion date of January 2015.

Once the programme of improvement works to Lancastercity centre car parks is complete an additional 16 disabled spaces will have been created for blue badge holders to use for free.
