Launceston Town Council agrees free pre-Christmas parking

Launceston Town Council has agreed to make parking in the town's multi-storey car park free on the last two Saturdays before Christmas. Charges will also be waived after 4pm on the two Fridays before the holidays.

The move was agreed tonight with the aim of giving a boost to the town's shops and businesses in the crucial run up to Christmas. I was very glad to add my vote in favour of this move.

The town council deal goes a stage further than Cornwall Council, which has agreed a £1 charge for all-day parking every Saturday in the run up to Christmas.

The free parking will apply after 4pm on Friday 13th and Friday 20th December and all day on Saturday 14th and Saturday 21st December. Please don't get caught out by seeking to park for free at other times.
