From Monday 10 August, North East Lincolnshire Council and its regeneration partner, ENGIE, will be introducing temporary one-hour free parking at their Orwell Street car parks.
The changes being introduced will be in place until Wednesday 30 September, at the request of Oasis Health Club wanting to host family activities in their private car park, yet still support their members with free parking to the club.
Surrounding businesses and visitors can also take advantage of this parking relaxation over the coming weeks.
Signage will be displayed in the car park advertising the changes. Customers requiring to stay for longer than one hour will be required to pay and display, in line with the existing terms and conditions.
Councillor Stewart Swinburn, portfolio holder for transport and the environment, said “It’s great to see local businesses hosting community events, where possible, to encourage residents to enjoy the outdoors in these times.
“We are pleased to be supporting Oasis Health Club by offering temporary one-hour free parking to allow these activities to take place.
“Not only will the temporary changes allow Oasis to continue business as usual, but we hope that this will also support other local businesses in the area by encouraging residents to park and walk to the nearby shops.”
