Free blue badge parking returns to Garden Street Car Park as council takes back control

9:32 am, Wednesday, 27th April 2022 - 2 years ago


The car park in Garden Street, opposite Abbey Walk in Grimsby, has returned to the control of North East Lincolnshire Council and will be operated as a pay and display facility.

The car park was leased by the council for 25 years, before being taken over by a private parking company in 2020. It is now set to reopen as a council car park on Friday 29 April.

Parking charges will apply Monday to Sunday, 8am to 6pm, including bank holidays. Payment can be made by coin, card or contactless via the ticket machine.

  • Up to 1 hour    £1.00
  • 1 to 2 hours     £2.00
  • 2 to 4 hours     £3.00
  • 4 to 10 hours   £5.00

The scheme is being brought forward in an attempt to provide suitable parking options for people visiting the town centre. It will see the return of free parking for blue badge holders once again for those displaying a valid blue badge.

When the car park was privately operated, concerns were raised by the public surrounding fines being issued by Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras. The council would like to confirm that ANPR cameras will not be operating in this car park.

The car park will be operated by North East Lincolnshire Council’s regeneration partner, EQUANS.
