PUBLISHED: 05:30 25 March 2020
Holders of resident parking permits in Ipswich are to be allowed to use certain council-run car parks in a bid to ease on-street parking issues.
Ipswich Borough Council said the decision, made on Tuesday, March 24, was taken due to more people staying at home during the coronavirus pandemic.
As part of the new scheme, permit holders will be able to park their cars indefinitely – without displaying a ticket – at the following car parks:
Zone 1 permit-holders can park in the Regent (bottom of Woodbridge Road), Fore Street and the Upper Orwell Street South (formerly Upper Barclay Street) car parks.
Zone 2 permit-holders can park in William Street (next to Crown Pools) and the Norwich Road Shoppers car park.
Zone 3 permit-holders can park in Smart Street, Bond Street and Upper Orwell South car parks.
Zone 4 permit-holders can park in the council’s Portman Road car parks.
Those using the scheme must ensure their vehicle’s registration matches that on the permit.
Permit holders have been told to expect an email from the council with further information.
