There will be free parking in Wellington on the five Saturdays leading up to Christmas to give a boost to the local economy.
Charges in Longforth Road, North Street and South Street (Bulford) will be waived for the whole day on November 26, December 3, 10, 17 and 24.
Cllr Roger Habgood, executive councillor for Planning and Transportation, said: “I am delighted that we are able to support traders in Wellington again. “This incentive to encourage shoppers to our towns is something of a tradition and has been extended to five weekends this year to include Christmas Eve. I hope that people take advantage of the free parking and we see an increase in business for all the traders.”
