Fringe period parking issues are addressed

Council chiefs have addressed the issue of town centre parking as Buxton sees an influx of visitors.

The Buxton Festival and Fringe has brought with it the usual array of art and entertainment lovers, putting strain on the town centre’s parking facilities.

To help meet the demand, the council is extending the opening hours at the Pavilion Gardens under-croft car park to 11.30pm every night until Sunday, August 18.

The car park will be open from 8am to 11.30pm everyday throughout this period and there will be no changes to tariffs.
