Free parking for festive shoppers
We will be providing free car parking on the two Saturdays before Christmas (17 and 24 December).
As we have said over the last couple of months, we are facing unprecedented financial pressures, with costs spirally upward and sources of income largely fixed or dropping, causing us to have to make some difficult decisions.
We will therefore be unable to provide the usual free weekend parking for all Saturdays in December.
We know free festive parking has been popular for many years, and not offering would seem unfair given the pressure we all feel. We felt it important to find a good balance between protecting our finances and supporting our residents and local shops.
On site parking machines or Ringo will continue to accept payment on the free parking days so please ensure you remember not to pay as we will not be able to provide refunds. There will be signs up at all applicable car parks.
