A four-hour parking limit is now in place on two of intu Merry Hill's car parks.

Shoppers face fines if they overstay their welcome on the 'red' and 'blue' car parks, which serve the upper and lower retail parks.

The restriction is being enforced by automatic number plate recognition cameras, which will track when cars enter and leave the Brierley Hill shopping centre.

Those that wish to stay longer than four hours will have to find a space on one of the centre's other 11 car parks.

A spokesman for intu Merry Hill said: "Parking at intu Merry Hill is completely free of charge for all shoppers.

 

"To ensure that there are enough spaces for our shoppers we have introduced a four hour time restriction on just two of our thirteen car parks, at the upper and lower retail park.

"Shoppers who are visiting us for longer than four hours are free to park on any of our other car parks for as long as they wish."

It's not just shoppers who have been hit with parking restrictions - back in March, staff were furious after being told they could only park on the centre's main customer car parks for two hours .
