Free Christmas parking days in the Vale

Great news for businesses as people in the Vale of White Horse can once again take advantage of an entire day of free parking in the run up to Christmas.

Motorists will be able to park for free in Vale of White Horse District Council car parks on the following days:

  • Abingdon – all day on Saturday 28 November
  • Faringdon – all day on Saturday 28 November
  • Wantage – all day on Saturday 5 December.

(On the above days there’s no need to display a ticket.)

The annual free parking tradition is provided by the district council in the run up to Christmas to encourage people to shop locally for their presents.

Cllr Eric Batts, Cabinet Member for HR and Technical Services at Vale of White Horse District Council, said: “The free parking tradition gives people a good incentive to hunt for presents locally. The free days in the Vale also coincide with local town Christmas celebrations so there’ll be lots on in the town centres too.”
