Norfolk County Council Trading Standards are highlighting the latest consumer scams in Norfolk.
The District Council receives complaints about inappropriate use of vehicles on its car parks, such as vehicles speeding, wheel spinning or loud music being played from car stereos which disturbs nearby residents. All NNDC car parks are covered by a by-law that sets out how car parks must be used. The by-law is detailed below and is enforced by both the Police and NNDC.
If you are concerned about misuse of an NNDC car park you should make contact with your local Safer Neighbourhood Team on 101 (Norfolk Constabulary non-emergency number).
