Free weekend Christmas parking offered to shoppers in town centres

Published: Tuesday, 22 October 2019

The Leader of Havering Council has today announced free parking for shoppers at weekends in the lead-up to Christmas.

Councillor Damian White said:

“I am pleased to announce that we are making it free to park in our car parks at the weekend from 30 November. This means that shoppers can enjoy our high streets, support our local shops, and buy Christmas presents and other goods and services.

“We want our residents to support our local shops and use them. We hope that offering free parking at the weekends in the lead up to, and just after, Christmas, will encourage them to make the trip and buy local.”

Free parking will begin on Saturday 30 November 2019 and will be available every weekend until 5 January 2020.

This will only be available in council car parks. On street parking is not included.
