PART ONE

Each car park panel will have the same main map as its base, with a number of highlighted areas of interest nearby.

Some key town features are: Ilkeston Town Hall, Erewash Museum, Victoria Park and Derby College, Ilkeston Campus. The main shopping areas of Bath Street and South Street should also be highlighted.  Other areas of interest may be added through a public engagement process.
