Motorists may no longer be able to park in a central Attleborough car park for as long as they want.
The town's council has voted in favour of a three-month trail to divide Queen's Square Car Park into short term (several hours) and long-term sections.
The decision, which it is hoped will make it easier for shoppers to find somewhere to park, was made at a meeting at the town hall on Monday.
Motorists can currently leave their cars at the Queen's Square car park for as long as they like.
One of those who voted for the trial was councillor Eddie Tyrer, but he also called for a more integrated plan for parking in the town.

Breckland council, which owns the car park, would manage and monitor the car park during the trial.
Breckland councillor Rhodri Oliver, who spoke for the trial at the meeting, said: 'We just need to see what impact on the town one trail has.'
