Christmas Parking 2017
|17th November 2017|
Free car parking will be on offer at Powys County Council's pay and display car parks for two key shopping days in the run-up to Christmas, the council has announced.
The festive initiative, which follows previous successful free parking schemes, will provide free parking on Saturday 16 and Saturday 23 December between 10am-6pm.
Councillor Leader Councillor Rosemarie Harris and Councillor Liam Fitzpatrick, Cabinet Member for Highways, said; "I am delighted to be able to confirm that the council's free car parking initiative will run for the two key shopping days in the run-up to Christmas.
"We know that the scheme will be welcomed by shoppers and businesses alike and will provide a timely boost to the county's economy in the run-up to the busiest shopping period of the year.
"The county's economy is vital to everyone and the festive period can make a real difference to countless businesses, so any help to increase spend has to be worthwhile."
The initiative only applies to off-street car parks and does not alter existing on-street parking restrictions. Free parking in short stay car parks is only applicable for a maximum of two hours.
