Shoppers coming to Congleton this weekend can once again take advantage of free parking after 10am on Saturday 12th December in three of the town’s main car parks. There will be no charge when parking in the Fairground car park by Congleton Library, Back Park Street car park behind Lawton Street or Princess Street car park near the market, although be aware that the three hour limit for the short-term Fairground car park remains.
The town is taking advantage of the second of its ‘free parking’ days on set car parks offered by Cheshire East Council. Parking on all car parks continues to be free on Sunday, and in the run up to Christmas many more shops in town have chosen to stay open to enable more people to shop locally. Back Park Street is free after 3pm every day.
Town Mayor Cllr Sally Ann Holland said: “We were pleased to be able to take advantage of the offer from Cheshire East. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, the friendly nature of our town and the great offers from many of our shops, it can take longer than you expect to get around the town centre. It is good that we can remove the fear of the parking ticket running out for people in these three car parks.”
There will be another ‘free’ day on Tuesday 22nd December.
