For the ninth year, East Riding of Yorkshire Council car parks will be free on December weekends before Christmas to help support local businesses. The popular scheme will apply to all council-run on-street and off-street car parks.
The locations can be found here: https://www.eastriding.gov.uk/environment/roads-streets-traffic-and-parking/parking/car-park-finder/
Pay and display machines in the council’s on-street and off-street parking locations will be clearly marked to let shoppers know there is no charge for the weekends of 1-2, 8-9, 15-16 and 22-23 December, from 8am on Saturday until 8am on Monday.
Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of the council, said: “The Christmas period is a key trading time for our local high streets. During the current period of economic uncertainty, it is vitally important that the council does all it can to support local businesses and encourage residents and visitors to shop in the East Riding.
“Free Christmas parking will include Small Business Saturday on 1 December.
“Now in its sixth year, Small Business Saturday is a campaign that this council whole-heartedly supports. Small and medium sized enterprises are the lifeblood of the East Riding economy and this campaign helps focus on the great work they do and to encourage people to shop locally.”
Whilst parking charges are suspended, motorists are advised that normal parking rules still apply, such as those around disabled parking bays, maximum stays and controlled parking zones (CPZ).
