For the first time a council in Nottinghamshire will be providing free car parking, all day, every day in December.
All town centre council-owned car parks in Ashfield will be free for the whole of December to help encourage shoppers to support local businesses. For the past five years the Council has provided free weekend parking in town centre car parks during December.
The car parks that will be free in December are:
- Sutton Market
- New Street
- Sherwood Place
- Ellis Street
- Hodgkinson Road
- Piggins Croft
- Market Place
- Yorke Street
Cllr Jason Zadrozny, Leader of Ashfield District Council, said
“We have listened to residents and business owners who have been asking us to make car parking free in December.
“We are pleased to be in the position to be able to offer this to support our small businesses and town centres.
“We have fantastic local businesses and our markets in Ashfield and we want to encourage more people to shop with them this Christmas.
“If we don’t use them, we will lose them so please take advantage of this offer in December and shop local.”
The ticket machines will have signage letting residents and visitors know that a ticket won’t be needed throughout December.
