SO YOU CAN SHOP TILL YOU DROP IN APRIL
|Visitors to Leeds will be able to take advantage of free parking as part of the city’s efforts to get the high street buzzing again following the easing of national coronavirus restrictions.
Leeds City Council announced today that parking charges are being suspended in council-managed car parks and on-road spaces in the city centre and Otley for three weekends in April and May.
The country’s lockdown exit roadmap means that, as things stand, non-essential retail businesses will be able to reopen on April 12, while hospitality venues can also serve customers outdoors from that date.
The weekends covered by the council’s free parking initiative will be April 17-18, April 24-25 and May 1-2. It will also cover May 3, which is a bank holiday Monday.
Maximum stay provisions – usually two hours for on-road spaces – will continue to apply.
