Leeds City Council urges public to park sensibly as charges continue to be temporarily suspended
Leeds City Council is reminding commuters to please park sensibly and observe yellow lines, as parking charges continue to be temporarily suspended in the city to support the vital work of NHS and other front-line workers tackling coronavirus
Whilst the majority of drivers are continuing to park appropriately, there has been some instances where parking on yellow lines has created issues in terms of traffic flow, public safety and access, especially in the city centre. Leeds City Council parking officers will from this week be issuing parking penalties to vehicles parked illegally.
Last month, the council announced that all council-managed car parks and on-street parking bays in Leeds will be free to use until further notice, in light of the coronavirus pandemic. This is still the case, with priority being given to NHS and social work staff and other key workers.
