Stop and Shop – free parking
There are 20 locations with over 50 machines where you can take advantage of this offer which allows you to stop and shop for free at any time. Simply find a space, get your free ticket from the machine, display it inside your windscreen and you will have 30 minutes parking free of charge to visit the shops.
Councillor Richard Foote, cabinet member for environmental protection, said: “Free parking in local areas is just one of the ways we are encouraging residents to support our businesses.
“Shopping locally helps grow our local economy, which can help create more jobs, as well as being more convenient than having to head into the town centre to pick up essentials.”
If you wish to stay longer than 30 minutes you can purchase a ticket from the machine that will allow you to park up to the maximum time allowed in the area. You can also pay by telephone by following the instructions displayed on the machine.
