Parking in North Norfolk District Council’s car parks will be free over the weekend before Christmas again this year.

On December 19 and 20, shoppers will be able to stay throughout the day without a ticket in any North Norfolk District Council run car park, saving them up to £1.20 an hour.

The decision supports North Norfolk’s businesses and traders by encouraging people to buy their Christmas gifts and supplies in their local towns. At a crucial time of year for the retail community, it is also a gesture of goodwill for the festive season in response to requests from businesses.

Cabinet Member for Assets John Rest said: “At such an important time of the year for retailers, it is vital that the council supports local businesses. There are scores of excellent shops across the district offering a wide range of goods and services. By providing this weekend of free car parking, we hope to encourage people to use that wealth of provision.”
