Car parks in Hull to begin charging again

It has been announced that Hull City Council are to begin charging again at car parks in Hull on June 15.

Fees were initially dropped in order to help people, especially key workers, through the coronavirus crisis.

But, as lockdown restrictions ease, the Council are reintroducing the charges.

Charges for on street parking were also introduced from Monday 18 May.

Short-stay and long-stay sites are affected.

This includes Albion Street, Lowgate, History Centre, Tower Street and Trippet Street, Osborne Street, George Street, Pryme Street, Francis Street and the ice arena will now resume charging for parking from Monday 15 June.

Signs encouraging people to observe two-metre social distancing rules have been put in place across all car parks.

Hand sanitisers and pedestrian direction posters have also been installed.

Motorists are also encouraged to use cashless payments by accessing the MiPermit scheme.

Councillor Daren Hale, portfolio holder for economic investment and regeneration, said:

“We have been liaising with businesses and other private car parks on the reopening of car parks across the city.

“As the lockdown eases in phases, businesses start to reopen and people begin to return the city centre, some of our services will also begin to resume their normal operation.”

Retail areas such as Trinity Market have introduced one-way systems and extra safety measures such as hand sanitisers and social distancing guidance.

Councillor Hale added:

“I’d like to remind people to take personal responsibility for their and actions and respect those around them by observing social distancing rules. We all have a duty of care and need to work together and stay safe.”
