Hull Fair to see new parking restrictions in place

New parking restrictions will be in place during Hull Fair next month.

Several streets in Hull will have parking restrictions increased to allow only parking for residents with permits during the fair.

Streets will include Granville Street, Lowther Street, Paisley Street, Perry Street, Ruskin Street, Sandringham Street and Walliker Street.

The restrictions will be in place from Wednesday 2 to Sunday 13 October. They will apply from Monday to Friday from 6pm to midnight and on Saturday and Sunday from noon to midnight.

Temporary signage will be installed to indicate where restrictions are in place.

Councillor Dave Craker, portfolio holder for culture, leisure and tourism, said: “Following concerns raised by nearby residents, we have improved parking arrangements in streets surrounding the Walton Street site.

“We would encourage anyone planning to visit the fair to use public transport where possible with Stagecoach providing extra services to and from the fair right across the city and a park-and-ride service operating from Priory Park and Humber Bridge car parks.”

Hull Fair will run from Friday 4 to Saturday 12 October and will be closed on Sunday 6 October.
