Free Christmas parking

Christmas is coming …..



Sedgemoor District Council is pleased to announce that it will be offering free parking in all of its car parks for the three weekends before Christmas on an annual basis.


People will be able to park without charge in all eighteen of the Council-owned car parks across Sedgemoor on Saturday 7th, 14th and 21st December, as well as free parking from 4 p.m. on the days of Christmas light switch-ons.


Cllr Duncan McGinty said “We are keen to support our many local and varied traders in the towns and villages across Sedgemoor and give residents and visitors an added incentive to shop locally in the festive season”.


There will be notices on the tariff machines in the car parks advising of the free parking.
