Parking charges lifted in run-up to Christmas
Parking charges in Beverley are to be suspended again this year in the run-up to Christmas. The decision was taken by East Riding of Yorkshire councillors this week and will apply on the four weekends in December before Christmas. It means shoppers will be able to park for free in council-run car parks as well as in streets usually covered by pay-and-display machines. Shoppers will be able to park without being charged between 8am on Saturday morning until 8am the following Monday.
In a report, the council’s director of economic regeneration Alan Menzies said: “In the current economic climate it is important that the council continues to support local businesses and this proposal seeks to support the local economy by providing free car car parking during the key Christmas period.”
The policy has operated for the past few years and applies to a number of other towns in the East Riding as well as Beverley.
Whilst parking charges are suspended, motorists are advised that normal parking rules still apply, such as those around disabled parking bays, maximum stays and controlled parking zones
