Multi storey car parking charges back to normal


14th August 2020

As more coronavirus restrictions ease and the economy re-starts in earnest, car park charges at Dundee City Council’s multi storey car parks will return to normal.

Barriers will come down late on Sunday (August 16) and from Monday (August 17) charges will resume at Greenmarket, Gellatly Street, Bell Street and Olympia.

A four week offer at Olympia and Bell Street will allow drivers to park all day at these facilities for £3. On September 14 prices will revert to the usual tariff at these car parks.

Mark Flynn convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “The dark days of complete lockdown presented a unique set of circumstances which meant that removing parking charges temporarily was the right thing to do.

“But after almost four months, and the support it gave to our key workers and others across the city, now is the time to continue their phased return.
Steven Rome, depute convener added: “We suspended parking charges following the coronavirus outbreak, to support key workers while most people stayed at home.

“Now as that eases off and more people return to workplaces and shopping areas it is right to get the charges back to normal as other councils have done over the past few weeks.”

Signage at the car parks details tariffs for each set charging period.
Standard charges for most surface level car parks were reintroduced on July 13.

Dundee draws skilled workers from a 60-minute catchment population of 640,000 and has a local population of over 140,000. The availability of a large pool of highly skilled labour is a key feature in the Dundee economy. Flexibility in the labour force is currently more prevalent in Dundee than in Scotland as a whole. All forms of labour market flexibility - part-time, temporary employment, self-employment and shift work - are widely operational within the city. Labour force stability in the city is excellent, enabling companies to plan with confidence. Labour turnover levels are less than 5% and absenteeism averages 2%.
