Coronavirus Update


14th October 2020

Dundee City Council is working closely with partners across the city to deal with the ongoing impact of Coronavirus (Covid-19).

Officers are monitoring the local situation daily and following the advice given by government and NHS public health experts. The council continues to consider appropriate actions based on the national guidance.

As of Tuesday 13th October: 

  • Car parking charges will return to normal in seven West End car parks from Monday next week.

Fees will be reintroduced at Roseangle, Pennycook Lane, Miller's Wynd, Mid Wynd, Bellfield Street, Ryehill Lane and Union Place.

Charges were introduced at these car parks at the start of the year to encourage turnover of spaces for shoppers and businesses, support overnight parking for residents and promote sustainable travel.

As a way of supporting key workers fees were suspended in Dundee City Council car parks on April 3, and returned to normal in August. The non-charging period was extended further in the West End until the university students returned.

From Monday (OCTOBER 19) overnight, weekend and up to two hours of parking will be free, with two to four hours costing £1 and four to eight hours £2.

A full list of council services affected by Coronavirus can be found on the Dundee City Council website. 

Dundee City Council

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%.
