This is the last week you can park for free at a popular Norwich park before charges are introduced. 

Visitors to Eaton Park will have to pay to use both the council-owned car parks from the week commencing Monday, March 20. 

It is the first park in the city to charge, with Norwich City Council using it as a way to raise £50,000 and help plug its £6.2m budget gap. 

Norwich Evening News:

The charges will apply daily from 9am to 9pm, excluding Christmas Day, and it costs £2 for up to four hours, £5 for up to five hours, £6 for up to six hours and more than six hours is £8, with contactless payment only.

Blue badge holders can continue to park for free in one of the allocated spaces. 

The decision was made following a public consultation, with the main concern from locals around drivers parking in neighbouring streets.

The council said they will be monitoring parking on surrounding roads.
