CDC offers free parking for Christmas launch events

Cotswold District Council will be waiving parking charges temporarily to support the launch of festive celebrations at several local market towns.

Christmas shoppers will be able to enjoy free parking to attend Christmas lights switch-ons and celebratory events in line with the following arrangements:

Saturday 28 November

Moreton-in-Marsh: free parking all day at Old Market Way car park.

Cirencester: free parking after 4 pm at all CDC car parks in town.

Thursday 3 December

Tetbury: free parking after 4pm at all car parks in town.

Friday 4 December

Bourton-on-the-Water: free parking after 4 pm at Rissington Rd car park (donations to local charities will be accepted on the day.)

Saturday 5 December

Stow-on-the-Wold: free parking all day at Maugersbury Rd car park.

Tetbury: free parking all day at Church St and West St car parks in town (the public will have to pay in the Chipping car park.)

Cllr Chris Hancock, CDC Cabinet Member for Enterprise and Partnerships, said:

“We hope that suspending charges to coincide with Christmas light launches and other festive events will ease the financial burden on families who plan to use their cars to get there. These concessions should also help to boost trade in local shops.

“We are also looking to introduce some parking charge concessions early next year to attract more motorists to our market towns during what is a relatively quiet trading period. We did this for the first time in January and February this year and it was very well received.”
