Residents living in permit-only zones in Grimsby have been told the cost of a permit is to rise by four hundred and thirty three per cent.

They have condemned North East Lincolnshire Council's plans, which would see the cost of a permit rise from £15 to £80 per year for one permit and £15 to £100 for a permit for a second car.

They have also dismissed the alternative - scrapping permit parking unless 70 per cent of residents agree to the price hike - as "unworkable". An action group has been formed.
