Free Festive 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.

 

People will be able to park without charge in all eighteen of the Council-owned car parks across Sedgemoor on Saturday 4th, 11th  and 18th December.

 

Especially given the additional impacts of Covid-19 on the local economy, Sedgemoor District Council is 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.
