Nottingham City Council believes that payday loans are detrimental to the health and economic well-being of Nottingham’s citizens.
The Council is supporting: stricter controls over payday loan companies and premises; stricter regulation of advertising for payday loan companies; and the promotion of credit unions which provide a safer loan alternative to vulnerable citizens.
As a result, all payday loan company websites will be blocked and inaccessible on all Nottingham City Council computers, including public computers in libraries from Thursday 19th September 2013.
For information on alternatives and advice on financial services visit the Welfare Rights Service.
In addition, after further review, the decision to block gambling websites on all Nottingham City Council Library computers was taken and is in effect from 1 November 2019.
