Residents and visitors to the Vale are set to receive an early Christmas present after it was confirmed, subject to scrutiny, that they will be able to park for free for two hours every day from this December.
On Friday 11 November the Vale of White Horse District Council’s cabinet voted in favour of implementing a new car parking order, which includes the provision of a two hour period of free parking that drivers can take advantage of anytime between 8am and 6pm in district council car parks.
The new scheme was proposed as a way to help boost the trade in Abingdon, Faringdon and Wantage town centres, allowing people time to do everyday shopping and also explore more of what the local shops, cafes and other businesses have to offer, while not having to worry about paying to park.
