Two-hours free parking to help town centres
21 July 2020
Powys County Council's #SupportLocalPowys initiative is being expanded to include two-hours free parking in all council pay and display carparks during the school summer holiday.
Beginning on Saturday 25 July, the day after the schools in Powys break up, the two-hours free parking will remain until the last day of the summer holidays, Bank Holiday Monday, 31 August.
Traditionally a busy time of year, the council are keen to make the most of the holiday season and encourage residents and visitors to enjoy the unique and historic towns within Powys and #SupportLocalPowys businesses.
"The recent lockdown restrictions have meant that many local businesses have either had to be closed for a significant amount of time or have changed the way in which they continued to trade." Explains Cllr Heulwen Hulme, cabinet member for Highways. "With regulations easing, we are delighted to see our high streets being bought back to life once again."
"Town councils, businesses and residents have already been extremely accommodating, making sure that premises and public areas are safe and accessible to shoppers to return to our town centres with confidence. By providing two-hours free parking for everyone at this crucial time, we hope to encourage even more people to visit and support our wonderful towns."
