A new free 38 space Park and Walk car park for staff and patients at Grimsby Hospital will open on Monday, June 21.
The land on the former Scartho Baths site has been secured as a temporary additional car park while we are building our new Emergency Department and decked car park at Grimsby.
We took the decision following feedback from you and our staff, who suggested the site could provide useful additional parking during the works.
The Senior Responsible Officer for the programme, Director of Estates and Facilities Jug Johal, said: “Given the location of the new building – which is being built out from our existing Emergency Department on an area of what was the main car park – it was inevitable there would be an impact on parking.
“My team and I have been working tirelessly in the background to try and find ways of minimising this, creating three additional new parking areas on the hospital site and exploring options for further parking to be created.
“As a result, we have now secured the former Scartho Baths car park on Scartho Road, which is just a short walk away.”
Our parking plans
As part of the Grimsby project, a new decked public car parking area is also being constructed.
Sitting directly in front of the main entrance to the hospital, the new car park will have 122 spaces available on the ground floor and 112 on the upper floor.
Mr Johal, added: “The new decked public parking area will not only mean that no parking provision is lost as result of the improvement works we’re carrying out at our Grimsby site but that we can offer modern, sustainable facilities such as charging points for electric vehicles.
“When the works have been completed, there will be 33 additional parking spaces available on the site.
“Unfortunately – even with our new temporary Scartho Road parking area – there will be fewer spaces available until the works are complete and, as a temporary measure, we are continuing to ask all those who are able to make alternative transport arrangements to do so.
“We appreciate that this will not be possible for some patients. However, if you can leave the car behind and take a bus, taxi or get a family member to drop you off, we’d be very grateful.
“I would also ask that you consider our neighbours and avoid parking on residential streets around the hospital site.”
