Council extends festive free parking

Tewkesbury Borough Council will be offering three days of free parking to encourage people to shop safely and locally in the run-up to Christmas.

Free parking will be available on the next three Saturdays - December 5, 12 and 19 - in council car parks in Tewkesbury and Winchcombe.

In previous years, the borough council has offered two days of free parking in the run-up to Christmas.

Councillor Robert Vines, lead member for finance and asset management, said: "We want to encourage residents to support their local shops by doing this year's Christmas shopping near to home.

"When lockdown ends on December 2, we hope people will choose to take advantage of the free parking and great range of retailers to buy gifts and festive fare.

"Our environmental health officers have been working closely with local businesses to help introduce Covid-secure measures that the risks are minimised as much as possible."
