Free Parking on Saturdays in the run up to Christmas

Thursday, October 31, 2019


Rochford District Council has agreed to free parking in its car parks all day on the three Saturdays before Christmas.

On December 7, 14, and 21 motorists will be able to park free all day in the Council’s car parks.

Rochford District Council’s Portfolio Holder for Enterprise, Councillor Simon Wootton, said: “Christmas is a time when our town centres and high streets are at their busiest and the council wishes to do all it can to assist both residents and businesses within our district.

“We are delighted to be able to continue with what has now become our traditional free parking on the Saturdays in December in the run up to Christmas.

“This is just one of the many initiatives we run to support our local economy and encourage residents to shop locally.

“May this small gesture go some way to ensure that you and your family have a very happy Christmas and a prosperous new year.”

The relaxation in charges applies solely to the Council’s car parks – on street parking controls will continue to apply.
