CAR PARK CLOSURE - GEORGE STREET - LEEDS

Traders at historic Kirkgate Market in Leeds say a car park closure has left their businesses stuck in second gear.
Stallholders claim their takings have slumped by as much as 40 per cent since the Leeds City Council-owned car park at Union Street and George Street shut on April 5.

The site, which is a stone’s throw from the market, closed ahead of the start of work on £150m Victoria Gate retail development.
Traders say more needs to be done to make drivers aware of other parking options within easy reach of the market
