Grimsby town centre Restricted Parking Zone reminder.

4:17 pm, Tuesday, 16th April 2024 - 1 month ago


DRIVERS in and around Grimsby town centre are being urged to check before they park – or risk penalties for entering or stopping in restricted streets.

Reports in recent weeks have stated how vehicles have been seen entering and then being parked and left in George Street, Victoria Street and New Street.

These are 24-hour, seven-day-a-week Restricted Parking Zones (RPZs). This means traffic is banned from entering and/or stopping except for buses, taxis or blue badge holders, or for loading/unloading.  There are no yellow lines as RPZs do not require them – instead information is displayed on signs.

The warning comes after North East Lincolnshire Council and its delivery partner, Equans, received reports of motorists breaching the RPZs – an offence which results in the issuing of Penalty Charge Notices.  Some cars have also been seen driving the wrong way up Victoria Street and George Street – which is extremely dangerous as these are one-way streets.

Whilst Blue Badge holders can legally park in RPZs, they are reminded to park safely and not obstruct visibility or prevent other vehicles from moving through or accessing the area.

A number of motorists were spoken to as part of a monthly Day of Action in the town centre, which was held last week.
