Free car parking on the three Saturdays (5, 12 and 19 December ) leading up to Christmas will again be on offer this year thanks to Wokingham Borough Council.
Free car parking will be available at:
- Polehampton Close, Twyford
- School Lane, Wargrave
- The Paddocks, Wokingham
- Denmark Street, Wokingham (council-managed section only)
- Easthampstead Road (east and west), Wokingham
- Rose Street, Wokingham
- Cockpit Path, Wokingham
- Headley Road, Woodley
- Crockhamwell Road, Woodley
- Lytham Road (east and west), Woodley
Cllr John Kaiser, executive member for planning and highways, said: "Free parking at Christmas has been very popular in previous years and I am pleased to announce that we are offering it again. One of our priorities is to invest in regenerating our towns and villages and increase trade so by offering this initiative I hope many people will use some of the wonderful shops on offer in the borough in the run-up to Christmas."
Maximum stay limits will still be enforced and any vehicles breaching these regulations will be subject to the usual charges. The free parking offer only applies to council car parks which are town centre related, and does not apply to privately managed car parks or car parks primarily used for commuting elsewhere.
