Free Parking For Christmas In Weymouth and Portland


(Updated 9:00am 14th November 2014)

8:44am 13th November 2014

Weymouth and Portland Borough Council is getting into the Christmas spirit this year by offering free parking.

On Weymouth's Victorian Shownight on Friday 5 December free parking will be available from 3pm followed by all day on Small Business Saturday on 6 December.

This means residents and visitors to Weymouth town centre can park for free in council-run car parks from 3pm on Friday 5 December until 9.30am on Sunday 7 December.

People can also enjoy free parking in Cosens Quay car park, Lodmoor main car park and Lodmoor Country Park during the day, but people cannot park overnight in these car parks.

Cllr Christine James, Weymouth & Portland Borough Council Transport & Infrastructure Briefholder said: "We are always looking at ways to support the local economy.

"Weymouth Victorian Shownight is a great traditional Weymouth event and Small Business Saturday is a chance for small businesses to showcase themselves and I fully encourage people to support both events.

"Having almost a whole weekend of free parking in the town is ideal for anyone who wants to come along and enjoy these events or spend some time in town doing Christmas shopping."
