22/07/20 UPDATE: Parking charges are being re-introduced on 3 August as lockdown easing measures are progressed.

All Fife Council parking charges at on-street locations and in public car parks are suspended from Thursday 9 April 2020.

This is in response to the current Covid-19 situation and will help safeguard access for key workers and local communities.

In addition to suspending charges we’re also suspending time limited waiting at all locations; allowing parking for any length of time across Fife.

Other restrictions such as yellow lines, loading bays and disabled parking places will remain enforceable. This maintains safety and access for vulnerable users, deliveries and emergency services.

Cllr Altany Craik, Transportation spokesperson welcomed this approach saying: “Thank you to Fife’s key workers for the vital services they’re providing during this pandemic. Removing parking charges and time limited parking is a small thing we can do to help our key workers and communities at this time. It also helps reduce pressure on residents, particularly in town centres, where demand for parking has increased during this period.”

Blue Badges that expired from 1st January 2020 will continue to be valid until the end of September 2020 in all Council parking places.
