After the success of last year’s scheme, Wokingham Borough Council is proud to announce that free daytime car parking on the three Saturdays (3, 10 and 17 December) leading up to Christmas is happening again this year.
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
- Shute End, Wokingham
Free parking will be available between 8am and 6pm on Saturdays only, 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 (not associated with train stations), and does not apply to privately managed car parks.
Cllr Malcolm Richards, executive member for highways and transport, said: "Free parking at Christmas has been popular in previous years and I am pleased to announce that we are offering it again this year. We want to increase trade in our town and villages so by offering this initiative I hope many people will use some of the wonderful shops on offer in the Wokingham Borough."
