Park for free after 4pm in Cirencester and Tetbury on Xmas light switch-on
Cotswold District Council will suspend parking charges after 4 pm for car parks in Cirencester (including the Brewery) on Saturday 30 November and in Tetbury on Thursday 5 December to tie in with the Christmas lights switch-on events in each town.
CDC officers will place signs at car parks in Cirencester on 30 November and Tetbury on 5 December, informing motorists about the free parking offer which is valid for the evening.
Commenting on the decision, the Cabinet member for the parking issues, Cllr Barry Gibbs, said:
"We hope that suspending charges after 4 pm in Cirencester and Tetbury on 30 November and 5 December respectively will ease the financial burden on families who wish to drive to the switch-on events. We know that in both towns Christmas switch-ons are one of the high points of the December shopping experience and we'd like to maintain our tradition of helping this. Both Town Councils readily agreed to our proposal and we are hopeful that this concession will boost trade in each town."
