"The driver of the vehicle must remain on site throughout the entire period of parking.

"The vehicle must be parked within the confines of a single marked parking bay.

"Vehicles parking in parent and child bays must be accompanied by one or more children under 12 years of age.

"Vehicles parked in disabled bays - a valid blue badge must be clearly displayed within the front windscreen."

The signs state that CCTV and ANPR technology 'may be in use' and add: "Breach of any term or condition will result in the driver being liable for a parking charge of £100.

"This is reduced to £60 if paid within 14 days."

Resident Chris Mallory said: "I understand why they've done it as people do park there and walk into town due to town's crazy parking prices - but people who use the shops there but stray innocently will get whacked.

"I think it's going to be a big issue."
