Amber Valley Borough Council is offering residents and visitors free Christmas parking. The initiative starts on 11th December and will last until the 26th. Free parking will be available in all of the borough council’s pay and display car parks, from 1.00pm onwards. The scheme is open to all car park users.
The annual initiative is designed to help the local economy by encouraging residents and visitors to do their Christmas shopping in the borough.
Deputy Leader of the Council, councillor Trevor Ainsworth, commented:
It’s the council’s great pleasure at this time of year, to offer free parking to all shoppers and visitors to the wonderful market towns of Heanor, Alfreton, Belper and Ripley. New for this year, the free parking has been extended to visitors to encourage shoppers from further afield to come along. I would personally like to encourage people to take advantage of the free parking, to explore each of the four distinctive towns in Amber Valley and the wide range of shops, services and places to eat and drink, which they have to offer.
Free parking is valid from 1:00pm each day from 11th December 2018 and ends at midnight on 26th December 2018. Other rules regarding parking in disabled parking bays and maximum stays will still apply.
