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 (including the Priory Centre in Worksop) in the run-up to Christmas and New Year.

Parking will be free after 2pm each day from Friday 1st December 2023 to Monday 1st January 2024 as the Council looks to encourage more people to shop local and support our town centre businesses.

Parking will also be free in the Council’s Worksop Car Parks (including the Priory Centre) on Saturday 25th November for the Christmas Lights Switch On. There are no parking charges in Council Car Parks on Sundays so the Retford Christmas Market and Lights Switch-On taking place on Sunday 26th November will also have free parking.

Cllr Alan Rhodes, Cabinet Member for Corporate & Financial Services said:

“We are offering free parking from 2pm throughout December to support traders and businesses in our town centres. This year we are also able to extend the scheme to the Priory Centre in Worksop and ensure that the Christmas Lights Switch Ons will benefit from free parking as well. I hope this will encourage people to shop local and support our town centre businesses.”

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