Council to offer free parking during December

There is some welcome news for Christmas shoppers with agreement from Warwick District Council to provide free parking during December.

Councillors have voted to waive tariffs in all council owned off-street car parks to coincide with the reopening of town centre businesses following the national lockdown and to support retailers in the run-up to Christmas.

Cllr Richard Hales said: “The latest lockdown has brought even more hardship to many of our town centre businesses, in an extremely challenging year.

“The council is now doing everything it can to support our local economy during the Christmas period.

“I very much hope that residents will take advantage of the free parking to do their shopping locally this festive season.”
