Council to provide free weekend parking over Christmas and New Year

Published: Thursday, 11 November 2021

Havering Council is to provide free parking in all council car parks at weekends from 27 November 2021 until 2 January 2022.

This is to help support local businesses in our High Streets and town centres in the run-up to Christmas and over the festive period.

Parking fees will be suspended for the next five Saturdays, from 27 November 2021 to 2 January 2022 inclusive.

This is in addition to the free parking on Sundays already in place, which will continue. 

Councillor Damian White, Leader of Havering Council, said:

“We want to do as much as we can to help both residents and our local businesses in the run-up to Christmas.

“Free parking in our car parks over Christmas and into the New Year will help give our local shops a much needed boost.

"We know Christmas is one of the most important times of the year for them.

“The retail and hospitality sector has suffered a lot because of the restrictions we have faced with the Covid 19 pandemic.

“Not only does free parking support and encourage our residents to shop local.

"It will hopefully provide a shot in the arm to Havering businesses after what has been another challenging year.”

The suspension of parking fees only applies to Council-run car parks. Charges remain as usual for on-street parking bays.
