Would free parking encourage you to shop local this Christmas?
Shoppers heading for the east of Suffolk this Christmas will be able to make the most of free parking which is being offered by Suffolk Coastal and Waveney District councils.
The two councils will be offering two-hour blocks of free parking which town and parish councils can use twice with Christmas events in the run up to the big day.
Carol Poulter and Graham Catchpole from Suffolk Coastal and Waveney Cabinets said in a joint statement:“Obviously, in the build up to Christmas, there is a larger variety of events being held over a longer period of time.
“However, we would still like to do our bit in supporting the community events and are getting into the festive spirit by offering periods of free parking during the weeks leading up to Christmas.”
But would this make you more likely to visit the area this festive season?
