In a move to help boost local businesses in the district and create a real Christmas Eve buzz, Waveney District Council has announced that parking will be completely free all day in ALL council-owned and managed car parks on Christmas Eve.
The Council is committed to supporting local businesses of all sizes and December 24th can often be quieter day for trading – particularly as it falls on a Sunday this year. Therefore Waveney will remove charges for the whole day in the hope that people will take advantage of some last minute opportunities ahead of the big day.
Cllr Graham Catchpole, Waveney’s Cabinet Member for Operations and Facilities believes the decision makes a huge amount of sense and will hopefully provide an extra boost for shops, cafes and restaurants.
He said: “We are entirely committed to boosting economic opportunities in Waveney and our businesses, no matter how large or small, really deserve support from local people. I hope that this offer makes Christmas Eve a special day for our hard working traders.”
Free parking will be available in the following car parks:
Angel Lane North
Angel Lane South
Thoroughfare Short Stay
Thoroughfare Long Stay
St Peters Street
