A MOVE to introduce family car parking spaces at the town hall car park in Royston has been rejected.
The idea was turned down by North Herts District Council after members of Royston Town Council's finance and general purposes committee had raised the issue.
They wanted to see larger parking bays introduced at the car park to help parents with children.
But the district council has said it would not introduce such a scheme.
Cllr Peter Burt said: "The number of parking spaces would be reduced and it would not be possible to enforce it."
Cllr Rod Kennedy said it was "disappointing" that such a scheme could not be set up.
