We are being advised that from Monday 26th September 2016 parking on Maxwell Avenue will be resident permit ONLY and double yellow lines. This is being introduced by Derby City Council.  Parking in this area without the required residents permit  is likely to incur a fixed penalty notice.

Please be aware that most streets close to the University of Derby are subject to parking controls. Please familiarise yourself with the area before you park your car.
