Parking restrictions in Market Place, Spencer Street, and Upper Dagnall Street in St Albans will be enforced from Saturday, July 1.
Visitors will have to park in pay and display bays for just one hour on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays, from 8am to 6.30pm.
Parking on market days will be prohibited from 3am and 6.30pm.
Council portfolio holder for business, Cllr Beric Read, said: “The parking restrictions will help the local economy.
“There will be an increase in the turnover of parking spots so more people can visit local shops and businesses.”

The council say the traffic regulation order codifying the restrictions was brought in following a public consultation process.
Single yellow lines have been painted in the bays to alert people to market day restrictions, and pay and display ticket machines have been installed.
