A city council is to place security bollards in front of a car park to stop commuters taking advantage of avoiding parking charges.

Salisbury City Council is to place the bollards across the entrance of Victoria Park car parks after complaints from other locals who say that there is never any space for them to park during the day.

The Salisbury Journal reports that the move follows an increase in the charge to use all-day parking in the city centre to £7.40.

Chris Stringer, senior parks officer for the council, told the news provider that the change is to make sure those that need the car park most are able to have access.

"There have been problems and we hope this is a way of making sure that the car parks are available for people who want to use Victoria Park," he explained.

Last month, it was revealed that steel fencing could be introduced in Salisbury to make sure that illegal encampments cannot take place at a former airfield in the New Forest.
