Free Festive Parking to Boost Business

Published Tuesday, 10 November 2015

Parking charges are to be waived at council-operated car parks in Clitheroe and Longridge town centres on three Saturdays in December and January.

The charges are being waived as part of the council’s annual festive business boost.

Free parking will be on offer for up to four hours at council-operated car parks in Clitheroe town centre and Barclay Road Car Park in Longridge on Saturday 12, 19 December and 2 January.

Ribble Valley Borough Council leader Stuart Hirst said the council was delighted to do its bit to boost trade during the festive season.

He said: “The council has been offering free festive parking at its car parks for some years now and the initiative has proved a great success.

“A lot of hard work goes into making Christmas in Ribble Valley special and we hope shoppers from throughout Lancashire will take advantage of the free parking to visit the borough and see what its unique, independent shops have to offer.”

Charges will be waived at council-operated car parks in Clitheroe and Longridge town centres, but normal charges will apply at the Edisford Road Car Park in Clitheroe and village car parks. The free parking is available for up to four hours per vehicle.

Retailers and workers are reminded that the free parking is for the benefit of customers and visitors.
