Drivers in the centre of Lincoln will be expected to present a residents' permit if they park on five roads in the area.

Upper Long Leys Road, Willis Close, Belle Vue Road, Belle Vue Terrace and Brook Street have become the latest streets in the city to be made exclusive by council officials, according to the Lincolnshire Echo.

Violation of the new rules could result in drivers picking up a motoring conviction which could in turn affect their car insurance policies.

However, plans to introduce the permit scheme in Sincil Bank and Monks Road were turned down by residents, although councillor Darren Grice believes this may have been down to bad planning.

"I have a real concern that this whole chunk of both sides of the High Street has been done as one big area and I am not surprised we got a no vote there," he said.

There are 84,000 residents of Lincoln, all of whom will be looking to escape such fines in the future.
