There’s an early Christmas present for shoppers and visitors to the town centre, with Wrexham Council confirming there will be free car parking this December.
Following on from last year’s successful initiative, it will be free to park in all council-owned car parks from December 1 to December 31.
Although parking will be free, time restrictions will be in place – so if you park in a short-stay car park (for example the Library Car Park), bear in mind that while you won’t have to pay anything, you’ll still be subject to the maximum times.
Cllr David A. Bithell, Lead Member for Environment and Transport, said: “Last year’s free parking proved very popular with the public, and as such we’ve decided to offer it again this year.
“All of our car parks will be free to access throughout the month.
“But I’d remind people to keep aware of the time restrictions – those who are looking to spend the day in Wrexham should use a long-stay car park.”
Cllr Terry Evans, Lead Member for Economic Performance and Regeneration, said: “I’d like to thank Cllr Bithell for making December free parking available again for the 2017 Christmas season – I’m sure the offer will be very much appreciated by Christmas shoppers and town centre businesses alike.
“I’d encourage residents and those from further afield to take advantage of the free parking while it’s on and do their Christmas shopping in Wrexham.
“As we’ve shown throughout the year, as well as the shopping precincts at Eagles Meadow, Island Green and Border Retail Park, we’ve also got a fantastic range of independent businesses in the heart of the town, many of whom will be able to cater to your Christmas shopping needs.”
