Coun­cil in fes­tive spirit with free park­ing of­fer

Shop­pers get early Christ­mas present on two Satur­days in De­cem­ber

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil has agreed to al­low free park­ing on the two Satur­days be­fore Christ­mas – De­cem­ber 12 and De­cem­ber 19 – in all its car parks.

The coun­cil expects that the two days will be the busiest shop­ping times in the run up to the big day and are keen to help out shop­pers, as well as giv­ing a hand to busi­ness own­ers.

It will mean that shop­pers in Ger­rards Cross, Bea­cons­field, Farn­ham Com­mon and Burn­ham will all be able to park for free on the two days in or­der to get some Christ­mas shop­ping done.

The scheme has been suc­cess­fully run in re­cent years in the build up to Christ­mas and South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil is keen to re­peat the suc­cess again this year.

South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil­lor Luisa Sul­li­van, port­fo­lio holder for the en­vi­ron­ment, said “We have of­fered free park­ing in the run up to Christ­mas for the past few years now and I’mde­light­edwe’re­run­ning the ini­tia­tive again this year. We know Christ­mas is an im­por­tant time for traders and we hope free park­ing will en­cour­age more peo­ple to shop lo­cally and sup­port busi­nesses on their doorsteps.”

Among the car parks to be in­cluded in the scheme are the War­wick Road car park, in Bea­cons­field, and the Al­tons and Pen­necroft sites, in Burkes Road, Bea­cons­field.

In Ger­rards Cross, the South Bucks Dis­trict Coun­cil-run car parks are in Bul­strode Way, Pack­horse Road and Sta­tion Road, all of which will be free on De­cem­ber 12 and 19.

There will also be free park­ing at the Broad­way car park, in Farn­ham Com­mon, as well as the Jen­nery Lane, Sum­mers Road and Neville Court sites, in Burn­ham.
