Christine Bayliss and extra details
Cllr Christine Bayliss, portfolio holder for Economic Development and Regeneration at Rother District Council, said: “The last year and a half has been extremely challenging for our local high streets and independent businesses and it is important we support them as much as possible during the busy Christmas period. We hope that by offering free parking on the Saturdays before Christmas and on the late-night shopping evening, residents and visitors will be encouraged to shop locally, supporting our communities and helping the local economy.”
Signage will be displayed in the off-street car parks confirming the dates when visitors can park for free.
