All council parking charges to resume on Tuesday 1st September

Parking Parking charges

Normal charges for all Leeds City Council car parks and on street parking will resume from Tuesday 1st September, including on evenings and weekends.

Parking will remain free for NHS and social care staff who are carrying out front line COVID-19 duties in the city centre, either at hospital, at other medical facilities or in people’s homes.

A spokesperson for Leeds City Council said:

“Back in March, Leeds was one of the first council’s to introduce free parking in a bid to ease some of the pressure on those still going to work during the pandemic. In July, the council reinstated parking charges with some temporary changes in place including free parking on evenings and weekends and a discounted rate for those who paid with the ParkMobile app in the city centre. After reviewing these changes we have decided that to help manage demand and usage, now is the right time to go back to the council’s pre-lockdown charges. This includes reinstating weekend and evening charges and ending the ParkMobile discount. These changes will apply from Tuesday 1st September.”
