Sedgemoor District Council is offering free parking in all its car parks on the two Saturdays running up to Christmas.
People will be able to park without charge in all eighteen of the Council-owned car parks across Sedgemoor on Saturday 15th and Saturday 22nd December.
Cllr Duncan McGinty said “We are keen to support our many local and varied traders in the towns and villages across Sedgemoor and give residents and visitors an added incentive to shop locally in the festive season”.
There will be notices on the tariff machines in the car parks advising of the free parking.
Sedgemoor District Councils owns and operates eighteen car parks across the district with a total of 1,691 parking spaces.
Sedgemoor relies on income from the car park to help pay for the cost of running the car parks such as business rates; CCTV; cleaning; looking after the shrubbery etc; repairs and maintenance to the tarmac; white-lining; maintenance/replacement of ticket machines; insurance and electricity costs for the lighting.
