The council has a duty to publish its parking revenues data each year and to provide a breakdown of how this revenue is spent.
Any surplus income generated from our off-street car parking is re-invested into the borough for environmental improvements, transport and highway improvements. All of these services benefit from the income raised through parking charges and they, in turn, benefit local people and visitors to Chesterfield.
