Free parking in Plymouth city centre for late-night shoppers
Plymouth City Council is pleased to announce free parking in a city centre car park for late night Christmas shopping.
The decision has been taken to support retailers affected by last week’s bad weather. Shoppers will be able to park for free at Western Approach car park after 4pm on the next three Thursdays in the run up to Christmas.
Cabinet member for Transport, Councillor Mark Coker said: “The first Christmas late night shopping Thursday was a bit of a wash out because of the gales and floods, and of course we had to postpone the popular Christmas lights switch on. We’ve decided to introduce free parking for the Thursday late night shopping in the city centre from now until Christmas to help retailers try to make up for any impact the awful weather has had on them.”
City Centre Manager Clint Jones said: “It was hugely disappointing that we had to postpone the Christmas lights switch on but the weather that night and the following weekend was truly horrendous. The City Centre Company and retailers really appreciate this support from the Council and we look forward to some busy evenings in the build up to Christmas.”
