Thursday 1 December to Saturday 3 December – Tetbury: All Car Parks in Tetbury will be free of charge from 4pm on the 1 December until 6pm on Saturday the 3 December. (NOTE: Sunday is normally free parking, therefore parking will be free in Tetbury from 4pm on the 1st until 8am on 5th).

Friday 2 December – Chipping Campden: free all day at Market Square

Bourton-on-the-Water: free parking after 3 pm at Rissington Rd car park (donations to local charities will be accepted on the day).

Friday 9 December – Stow-on-the-Wold: free parking from 3 pm at Maugersbury Rd car park.

Cllr Chris Hancock, CDC Cabinet Member for Enterprise and Partnerships, said:

“Waiving charges for Christmas light switch-ons and other festive events should save money for the many families across the District who plan to travel by car to enjoy one of more of these spectacles.  We also hope that it will encourage people to arrive earlier and boost trade in local shops.

“We are already operating a ‘free after 3pm’ scheme every day at the Brewery and Forum car parks in Cirencester, and Christmas shoppers can also benefit from free parking on Saturdays, Sundays and Bank Holidays at the Council’s Trinity Road headquarters (GL7 1PX) and also at the St James’s Place offices (GL7 1FP).”
