Why is Council changing how long people can park in certain areas?

The changes to time limits will provide a better mix of short, medium and long-term parking options.

In particular, most 2-hour parking spaces will be converted to 4-hour parking spaces to give people more time to visit patients at the hospitals, attend specialist appointments or access out-patient services, as well as offering an alternative parking option for some hospital shift workers.

The introduction of paid, 3-hour parking, will also encourage greater turn-over of parks in premium locations directly outside both hospitals.
