Free parking plan goes to Cabinet

East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s Cabinet will be asked next week to approve a ninth year of free Christmas parking for the four weekends in the run up to Christmas and to also suspend parking charges for Armistice Day this year, which takes place on Sunday, November 11th.

Events will be taking place at cenotaphs and memorials across the country, including those in the East Riding, and will focus on the centenary of the end of the First World War – a conflict that claimed the lives of more than 700,000 British service personnel. 

To help those commemorating the occasion, the council’s cabinet will be asked to support the suspension of parking charges at its on-street and off-street pay and display locations when it meets next Tuesday, July 17th.

Council leader Stephen Parnaby told Beverley FM: “With 2018 marking 100 years since the end of the First World War, it is more important than ever that we reflect on the bravery, dedication to duty and sacrifice of our armed forces – past and present – on Remembrance Sunday.” 

Plans are also being put to cabinet to approve the popular free Christmas parking initiative for a ninth year.
