Free parking in Chesterfield over Christmas

Good news for Chesterfield late night shoppers over the Christmas period.

Chesterfield Borough Council have agreed to give free parking for late night shopping in the town on the run-up to Christmas.

Late night shoppers won't have to pay for parking in the Town Centre's Borough Council car parks from 24th November until a week before Christmas.

Cllr Chris Ludlow, Executive Member for Environment of Chesterfield Borough Council said: "People are struggling in these tough financial times and Christmas will be an expense that will hit hard with many local residents."

It's hoped the initiative will encourage people to shop locally.

Free parking available from 4.00pm onwards on all Chesterfield Borough Council car parks within the Town centre from 24th November until the week prior to Christmas week and then each day from 19th December until the 23rd December.
