Good news for city
centre clubbers as the Council meets local business' requests! The
recent opening of a leisure complex of bars, nightclubs and a brand
new bowling alley in New Road, Peterborough has led to surrounding
street being clogged up with revellers' cars. Following a top level
meeting with City Council officers and local leisure businesses, the
Council have extended the opening hours of the Markets Car Park.
Sharmini Williams the
Council's Car Parking Manager said: "The Markets car park is now
opening until 4.00am every morning on the busiest nights of the
week; Wednesday through Saturday. We know that the lead up to
Christmas is a very hectic and exciting time for clubs. We want people
to be able to come into the City, park their cars in safety and enjoy
a good night out, with no worries about leaving early for their car.
4.00am has to be lat enough (or early enough) for most people."
Peterborough's City Centre Manager said: "I was aware of the
problems around the New Road area of the City and arranged a very
positive meeting between the local leisure businesses and the Council.
I am delighted to say that the Council has responded brilliantly to
our suggestions. Not only is the Council increasing the Markets Car
Park's opening hours, but they are also beefing up its security
patrols. Now coming out for the night in the City is even more
convenient and safe."
