Shoppers will benefit from free evening parking once again this festive period, thanks to Wyre Forest District Council.
From Saturday 15 November until Sunday 11 January (inclusive) the Council is making parking free in its car parks after 4.00pm. The free parking offer is part of its continued initiative to encourage people to shop locally. The Council is offering this extended free parking to encourage shoppers into the town centres.
Councillor Helen Dyke, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Operational Services said:
“We are really pleased that once again we are able to offer the free evening parking through the festive season. This is the fifth year we’ve run this scheme which is aimed at supporting businesses as well as shoppers. The offer starts on Saturday 15 November – the same day as the Christmas lights are switched on in Kidderminster, so this is a great opportunity to go into town and join in the festivities. There are plenty of other events and activities planned in the town centres over the festive period too, so we hope this will attract people into the towns to shop locally.”
The free evening parking offer is as well as the weekly free parking offers. Bromsgrove Street Car Park in Kidderminster is free on Wednesdays between 10.00am – 4.00pm. Dog Lane Car Park in Bewdley and Severn Meadows 1 (behind the Civic Centre) in Stourport-on-Severn are free on Thursdays between 10.00am – 4.00pm. This means on certain days visitors can park for free all day from 10am.
