SWT offers Christmas Parking incentive

01 December 2020 : Council news, Parking

SWT is offering free parking to help support businesses in towns and villages across the district this festive season.
The Council is offering free parking all day on the three Saturdays leading up to Christmas in its car parks at Dulverton, Dunster, Minehead, Porlock, Watchet, Wellington and Williton to support traders, residents and visitors.
In Taunton parking will be free after 3pm on the same three Saturdays - 5 December, 12 December and 19 December. This offer excludes the Kilkenny car park which is a long stay commuter car park.
Cllr Mike Rigby, Executive Member for Planning and Transport, said: “We are keen to give residents and visitors an added incentive to shop locally in our towns and villages over the festive season.
“We have measures in place to encourage social distancing and enable people to shop safely so I hope that people will take advantage of this opportunity to park for free and provide a much needed boost to the retail economy after what has been a very challenging year.”
