Polling Day Parking in Launceston

For polling day on Thursday, Cornwall Council are giving limited free parking in some car parks - but only where they are the closest to a polling station. I'm not aware that this is the case in Launceston but it is a very good initiative. 

For those who vote at St Thomas Church Hall, you can park on the road at Riverside for free - just be mindful that there will be a lot of traffic. 

More than half the town will vote at the Town Hall. I asked the town council if they will allow a small amount of free parking in the multi-storey. I got a somewhat negative response, but they have agreed to consider it at a meeting on Wednesday evening.

If there is free parking, please do not abuse the facility by staying for any longer than it takes to vote. Free parking is not being provided to enable you to nip into the town and do some shopping - however quick you are.
