Free Saturday parking offered at Eden District Council-owned car parks in run up to Christmas

Eden District Council is offering shoppers free Saturday parking in all of its Council-owned car parks in the run up to the festive period.

The free parking will cover the four Saturdays before Christmas, starting from Saturday 27 November.

Due to Bank Holidays, Saturday parking charges will return on Saturday 8 January 2022.

Residents and visitors are being reminded that they may still have to pay for on-street parking and car parks owned by other companies, and should check local parking enforcement arrangements before travelling.

Cllr Mike Tonkin, Services Portfolio Holder at Eden District Council, lent his support for the initiative, adding, “the suspension of car parking charges at Eden car parks is welcomed and continues a long standing tradition.”

For more information on parking charges, call Eden District Council on 01768 817817 or email customer.services@eden.gov.uk.  Alternatively, visit the council website at www.eden.gov.uk/parking-roads-and-transport/parking/car-and-vehicle-parking.
