Tetbury’s 7 December Christmas Lights switch- on gets free parking boost
Cotswold District Council has announced that parking charges at the Church Street and West Street car parks in Tetbury will be suspended after 3 pm on Friday 7 December to tie in with the town’s Christmas lights switch-on ceremony which takes place at 6 pm.
The Feoffees, who own the Chipping car park, are also suspending parking charges for the same reason.
Motorists should also be aware that road closures will be in place in the centre of Tetbury from 3pm to 9 pm on 7 December to provide more space for pedestrians.
Cabinet member for the Environment, Cllr David Fowles, said:
“I am pleased to confirm that parking charges will be waived in Tetbury after 3 pm on 7th and I very much hope that it will encourage more people to come out and enjoy the Christmas light ceremony as well as the late night shopping and entertainment on offer.”
