Free Afternoon Parking for Christmas Shoppers

Free Parking Christmas
Shoppers in Worksop and Retford will be able to take advantage of free parking again this year in all Bassetlaw District Council Car Parks in the run up to Christmas and New Year.

Parking will be free after 2pm each day from Saturday 9 December until Tuesday 2 January 2018.

There will also be free parking from 2pm in all Council Car Parks for the Christmas lights switch-on event in Worksop on Saturday 25 November. Parking is also free every Sunday in all Council Car Parks and will remain free for the Retford Christmas event on Sunday 26 November.

Stickers advising of the free parking times and conditions will be placed on all parking meters within Council Car Parks.

Councillor Simon Greaves, Leader of Bassetlaw District Council, said: “We are offering free parking in Worksop and Retford from 2pm and hope that this will encourage residents to visit our town centres for their Christmas Shopping. We remain committed to supporting local businesses within the district and hope that the free afternoon parking will help support an increase in trade over the festive period.”
