As part of a major refurbishment programme, the car park at Conyngham Hall in Knaresborough, will be closed from Monday 13 March for up to three weeks for essential repair works.
The council is investing £97,000 in the work which includes resurfacing of the whole car park and the lining of parking bays. Weather permitting, the car park will re-open by Friday 31 March.
During this time, motorists will still be able to use alternative car parks within the town, which are located at Chapel Street, Fisher Street, Castle Yard, York Place and Waterside, as well as on street car parking.
Councillor Rebecca Burnett, Harrogate Borough Council’s Cabinet Member for Planning and Sustainable Transport said: Over the last few years, the council have undertaken refurbishment work on a number of car parks in Knaresborough including the complete resurfacing and relining of those located at Castle Yard and Chapel Street. We are now undertaking the resurfacing of Conyngham Hall car park.
Regular users of the car park will know that the surface is in very poor condition and these works will significantly improve this popular car park for both residents and visitors to Knaresborough.
The closure is necessary to ensure the works are completed both safely and efficiently and I would like to apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank users of the car park for their co-operation whilst we undertake these essential improvements, which we aim to finish as soon as possible.
