Free Afternoon Parking for Christmas Shoppers

Free Afternoon Parking for Christmas Shoppers

Visitors to Worksop and Retford will be able to take advantage of free afternoon 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 Monday 2nd December 2019 until Wednesday 1st January 2020 and the Council hopes this will encourage more people to shop local and support local businesses.

Visitors will also be able to take advantage of the free parking when visiting the Council’s Stocking Filler Markets that are taking place in Worksop on Thursday 12th and 19th of December, and in Retford on Tuesday 10th and 17th December.

David Armiger, Director for Regeneration, Neighbourhoods and Housing said: “We’re very pleased to announce that we are again giving visitors and local businesses an early Christmas present by providing the opportunity to park for free in Worksop and Retford throughout December.”

“Following the recent floods in Bassetlaw, this is also just one of the ways in which we are supporting local businesses and hope that this will encourage more people to visit our town centres, shop on our high streets and use our markets.”

Information about the free parking times and conditions will be placed on all parking meters within Council owned and operated Car Parks in Worksop and Retford.
