Council reminder on Yarm pay and display arrangements

Thursday, May 01, 2014

Stockton Council is reminding residents and visitors to Yarm High Street that anyone parking for one hour or less does not need a ticket as this is free.

Pay and display parking was introduced on Yarm High Street on Monday, April 28. Parking is free for the first 60 minutes then just £1 for the next two hours and £1 per hour after that, with no maximum stay. Parking charges will apply from 9am to 5pm, Monday to Saturday, but will not apply on Sundays or Bank Holidays.

Councillor Mike Smith, Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport, said: “We appreciate that there was some confusion at first with the new system and have taken on board comments received from businesses as well as visitors and shoppers over the past week. We have amended the signs on the pay and display machines to make the instructions clearer.

“If you wish to park for an hour or less you do not need to get a ticket as this is free. If you are staying for longer than an hour simply pay at the machine and you will not be charged for the first hour.”
