Parking Update – Christmas shoppers to be offered free weekend parking

Monmouthshire shoppers are being encouraged to support their local businesses with free weekend parking being offered in the approach to Christmas, throughout December.

The council has once again announced it will provide free weekend parking in all council-owned car parks from Saturday 5th December until, and including, Boxing Day. Head down to your local high street to take advantage of the fantastic array of local businesses selling everything from handmade gifts to locally sourced produce all in time for the big day. The offer of free parking in the three towns (Abergavenny, Chepstow and Monmouth) is hoped will encourage everyone to Shop Local.

Councillor Jane Pratt, cabinet member with responsibility for car parks, said: “We’re pleased to once again offer free weekend parking to our residents, especially in light of the challenges faced due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is the perfect opportunity to safely visit your local retailers and I have no doubt you’ll be surprised with all the fantastic bargains and unique gift ideas you can find right on your doorstep. This is also a great opportunity to support your friends and neighbours who run businesses across the county.”
