    Free Christmas parking in Blackpool...Will Sefton Council do the same for Southport?



    Shoppers are set to benefit from a host of parking offers in Blackpool town centre this month to support town centre businesses and trade.

    Parking on Central car park will be free all day, every day throughout the month starting on Monday 4 December.

    The free parking offer announced by Blackpool Council and the Town Centre BID is on top of the £1 parking offer on West Street, East Topping Street and Talbot multi-storey car parks available from Monday 4 December up to and including 31 December.

    Last-minute shoppers are also being given an extra Christmas bonus with free parking on its town centre car parks on Saturday 23 and Sunday 24 December. These include West Street, East Topping Street, Central and Talbot multi-storey car parks.

    Cllr Gillian Campbell, Deputy Leader of Blackpool Council, said: “We try to support both businesses and shoppers where we can, which is why the free parking offer on Central car park is running for the whole of December, including the week between Christmas and New Year, so shoppers will be able to take full advantage of the seasonal sales too.

    “We want shoppers to enjoy their time in Blackpool town centre and hope that the discounted and free parking offers will encourage people to do their Christmas shopping and benefit from the diverse range of both small firms and bigger retailers that we have here in Blackpool.”

    Cllr Mark Smith, Blackpool Council’s Cabinet Member for Business and Economic Development, said: “We have listened to feedback and are working with local traders to continue to promote all that is great about Blackpool town centre.”

    A spokesperson for the Blackpool BID Board said: “It’s great news that the council have listened to the businesses and ourselves and agreed to offer free parking from Monday 4 December.

    “Some retailers are really concerned with the challenges they are facing . The businesses agreed that free parking was one of the best options to try and kick start Christmas shopping."

    I suppose it's difficult to remember news articles you've previously posted when it's just a copy and pasted press release written by a councillor.
