Mendip offers free festive parking

Story posted on

Mendip shoppers, visitors and businesses are set to benefit from free parking in the run up to Christmas and on New Year’s Day.

The district council says, “Free car parking will be available in all its pay and display car parks during the holiday period. And there’s a fee-free day planned to support Small Business Saturday on 7th December too, (at selected car parks).

“Mendip will suspend all parking charges from Wednesday 18th December until Tuesday 24th December – a goodwill gesture that’s guaranteed to bring glad tidings to traders and shoppers alike.

“New Year revellers can also raise a glass in celebration, as the council is providing free parking all day on Wednesday 1st January. This is to support drivers who park vehicles in car parks on New Year’s Eve, to use alternative and safe methods of transport to get home.

“In Frome, anyone visiting the area for Small Business Saturday, on 7th December, will find Christmas has come early, as charges will be suspended in the Cattle Market car park.

“Mendip District Council is delighted to be offering free festive parking to help local businesses, residents and visitors. We hope people will take advantage of the gesture and flock to Mendip across the season to support our traders this year, as they have done so generously in the past.”
