Pay and display parking charges return on Monday 22 June 2020 warns City of Edinburgh Council

Earlier today City of Edinburgh Council emailed Leith Links Community Council with a request that we share the below information relating to pay and display parking charges.

I’m writing to you to inform you that it is proposed to re-introduce pay and display parking charges on Monday 22 June 2020. From this date any vehicle parked incorrectly in a public, shared-use or residents’ parking place may be issued with a parking ticket.

Residents who hold a valid Residents’ Parking Permit were granted dispensation to park their vehicles in pay and display parking places located within their own zone, provided those bays are not subject to a suspension. I can confirm that this dispensation will continue to remain in place until further notice and we will be writing to residents to inform them in due course.

It would be most helpful if you could distribute this information through your networks to help inform members of the public who may be affected by these changes.
