Darwen car parks have reopened after floods
The majority of Darwen town centre car parks have now been re-opened following the recent floods.
Knott Street and Atlas Street are the only ones to remain closed because further investigation needs to be carried out into the culvert.
Councillor Dave Harling, Executive Member for Regeneration, said: “We have worked hard to get the town centre back to normal as soon as possible following the floods.
“We tried to keep as many open as possible. We carried out urgent inspections to check they were safe so they could be reopened. We hope the extension to free parking also helps traders and shoppers in the town.”
Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council has also temporarily agreed to extend on-street parking and parking on the market roof top from one hour to three hours.
Restriction around disabled parking and those on yellow lines still apply.
