Improvement works are to be carried out to two car parks in the Harborough district, with one seeing extra parking bays introduced for disabled people.

Essential maintenance will be taking place at the Fox Yard car park, adjacent to Harborough District Council’s Symington Building offices, between Symington Way and Adam and Eve Street in Market Harborough, and at the George Street car park in Lutterworth town centre.

Works to the car parks – both owned by the council – will begin on Monday and the work is costing £16,000.

The Fox Yard 98-space short-stay car park will be closed for about a week and is expected to be re-opened to the public on Monday, March 2.

The Symington Building’s archway, which leads from Adam and Eve Street to the car park, will also be closed to pedestrians for the duration of the works.

And as part of the works, the number of disabled parking bays in the Fox Yard car park is being increased from three to six.

The George Street 44-space short-stay car park is expected to be closed for a single day, re-opening on Tuesday, February 24.

Works to the car parks will include repairs to the surface and relining parking bays where necessary.

A council spokesman said any disruption would be kept to a minimum.
