FREE PARKING IN TOWN COUNCIL CAR PARKS EXTENDED

The Town Council has decided to continue to provide free parking in its car parks in Rowberry Street and Tenbury Road, until 31st March 2021.

The free parking initiative was introduced at the beginning of lockdown in an effort to help alleviate pressure on local businesses and residents. 

Town Councillors hope that the move to extend free parking will encourage people to shop locally, kick-start the local economy and encourage visitors to return to the town as lockdown restrictions continue to be relaxed over the coming weeks.
