East riding Parking Charges to recommence but not for NHS or Other Keyworkers

With lockdown in some parts easing across England especially around the use of a motor and travelling, Councils across the nation have started to bring back parking charges for their car parks.

Free parking across the East Yorkshire region started when lockdown proposals came in and the relevant guidance and laws were set however from Monday 1st June the regular parking charges will come back into force. NHS staff, carers and volunteers will still be able to get free parking across East Yorkshire while on duty and with having the NHS permit displayed.

The NHS permits are a nationally recognised scheme and can only be issued by your own employer. 

Alongside the parking charges, parking enforcement will also continue across the East Yorkshire region.

Councillor Richard Burton, Leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “We suspended parking charges at the beginning of the lockdown as a show of support for NHS staff, carers and key workers.

“Now, since the Government has made changes to the lockdown restrictions, parking charges will return.

“But we are pleased to continue the free parking for NHS staff, carers and volunteers when they are on duty.”
