Plans to introduce a charge of up to £50 for resident and visitor parking permits in Leeds are to be dropped.

Leeds City Council planned to introduce the fee to help it meet budget savings of almost £55m and the scheme's £160,000 yearly running costs.

The authority said the decision not to proceed with the plan followed a public consultation.

About 16,200 households are covered by the parking permit scheme with more than 20,000 individual permits issued.

The scheme enables residents and their visitors to park in streets close to their homes.

The Labour-run council approved plans to scrap free parking in the evenings and on Sundays in June.
