Christmas 2020

Festive parking

Christams Parking P Sign

We are offering free parking again this year on all WFDC car parks after 3pm each day from Friday 20 November until Sunday 3 January 2020.

Please note Weavers Wharf is not a council owned car park therefore the above does not apply.



Christmas bin collections

We are sorry about the disruption to our waste collection service between Monday 28 December and Thursday 31 December, due to the weather.

The crews worked hard to try to reach as many households as possible, but there were still some collections which we did not manage to complete. If you were one of them, please leave your bin out from Monday (4 January) and we will return to collect it as soon as possible.  There is no need to contact us.

If your waste (black) bin would normally be collected on Fridays please note we have moved Friday 1 January collection to Monday 4 January.

Thank you for your patience.
