A new pricing system is being introduced for car parking at some of Northamptonshire County Council’s country parks from April 1.

The money raised through charging for parking will be ploughed directly back into the service to help pay for the ongoing maintenance of the parks.

The increase was agreed as part of the council’s budget approved in February.
