Parking fines are set to be dished out to motorists breaking new restrictions at Doncaster Royal Infirmary.

From 23 June, a three-month trial will begin that will see parking at Gates 3 and 4 reserved for patients and visitors only.

The enforcement will operate between 8.30am to 7.30pm Monday to Friday excluding Bank Holidays and during the trial a British Parking Association officer will be able to issue £60 fines, which can be reduced by half if paid within 14 days.

Signs displaying the terms and conditions will be displayed on the car parks/roads where enforcement actions are to be taken.

Nigel Myhill, director of estates and facilities, said: “Over the years parking has become increasingly difficult for patients and visitors.

“That is why we are trialling this scheme and looking at the best way to offer fair and easy access to parking so that those patients and visitors who really need to access the hospital by car are able to do so.”

“We are also reminding staff and other visitors of the free park and ride service we have that runs from the Racecourse throughout the day in the hope that more people will use that service instead of parking on site or on any side streets.”
