Free parking for Advantage card holders as the high street starts to re-open

Published: Friday, 12th June 2020

Advantage Card holders will be entitled to free parking for three hours from Monday 15 June as the council helps to stimulate the local economy with high streets and non-essential retail re-opening.

If you are a current Advantage Card holder, place your card on your dashboard when you park and you will be entitled to three hours free parking in any of our car parks. This offer will be in place for four weeks and will finish on Sunday 12 July. 

Councillor David Cannon, lead member for public protection and parking, says: “I am delighted that we have been able to offer free parking to our current Advantage Card holders. As a council we want to support and stimulate the local economy following the closure of shops and restaurants. I would encourage residents to shop local and support local so we can all do our bit to support independent businesses in our borough.

“We are asking that card holders leave their card on the dashboard to take advantage of this offer.”

The changes will mean that all car parks will fully re-open.
