Ilkeston Fair - road closures and suspension of residents’ parking schemes
Residents’ parking schemes close to Ilkeston town centre will be temporarily suspended during the week of the 765th Charter Fair – a move which is taken every year in an effort to free-up car parking space.
The schemes will be suspended from Monday 16 October to Sunday 22 October inclusive, resuming on Monday 23 October.
Streets belonging to the two residents parking schemes are:
St Mary Street Area: Burns Street, Fullwood Street, Fullwood Avenue, Gregory Street, Jackson Avenue, New Lawn Road, St Mary Street, Wilmot Street. Queens Drive Area: Albert Street, Cedar Park, Darwin Avenue, Queens Drive, Lissett Avenue, Moss Road.
A one-way system will be in place along Wharncliffe Road, Albert Street and Queen’s Drive to the junction with Oakwell Drive. Diversions will be in place and signposted.
Several town centre car parks are always closed throughout Ilkeston Charter Fair week to make way for the rides, stalls and fair vehicles.
The following road closures will be in place from 5am on Tuesday 17 October until midday on Sunday 22 October:
- South Street (from its junction with Derby Road to the Market Place)
- Wharncliffe Road (from Albert Street to the Market Place)
