Park for free after 3 this Christmas!
News release issued:
Shoppers can take advantage of free parking at all Wyre Forest District Council car parks during the festive period.
From Friday 19 November to Sunday 2 January 2022, visitors to council-owned car parks will be able to park from 3pm until 8am the next day for free.
There’s more good news as Christmas light switch-ons will take place this year after they were cancelled in 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic.
Kidderminster’s festive display will be switched-on on Saturday 20 November outside Kidderminster Town Hall. Stourport’s switch-on takes place on Friday 26 November and Bewdley’s on Saturday 27 November. The events have been organised by each town’s respective town council.
Councillor John Thomas, Wyre Forest District Council’s Cabinet Member for Operational Services said:
“We know it has been another hard year for businesses and residents in the district so we are delighted to be able to announce our festive car parking offer. We hope it will encourage people to shop locally and attract shoppers from out the district.”
The parking offer applies to car parks owned by Wyre Forest District Council only. It is not available at Weaver’s Wharf car park in Kidderminster, which is privately owned.
Signs will be put up at the entrances to all council car parks and information will also be displayed at all ticket machines. Motorists – including those using the Just Park app - will not need to pay for parking beyond 3pm during the period.
