Free parking in town for Christmas shoppers
The parking charges will be waived from 1pm on both Saturday, December 15, and the following week on Saturday, December 22.
This applies in STONE car parks on both:
- Christchurch Way
- Crown Street
Councillor Frances Beatty, cabinet member for Economic Development and Planning, said: “Whether people are shopping for gifts, festive food and drink or going for a seasonal lunch, they can do so and not have to pay to park on these two afternoons.
“The town centre has so much to offer and I encourage people in the borough to shop local for Christmas this year.”
Mary Walker, chairwoman of Stafford Town Centre Partnership, added: “These are key dates for retailers and so I am very pleased we can attract more people in to the town by offering free parking.”
“I hope residents and visitors will also put dates in their diaries for the several events taking place in and around the town centre in the run up to the big day.
“It is great to see the town busy with shoppers and people enjoying the festive activities and I know retailers and businesses will be keen to capitalise on the increased footfall.”
