Free Christmas Parking for Scarborough Borough Approved

Published by Local Democracy Reporter Carl Gavaghan at 12:06pm 7th November 2019.

A plan to offer free parking in the run-up to Christmas in Scarborough and Whitby has been approved.

Scarborough Borough Council wants to encourage shoppers to spend their Christmas pounds locally and will now be suspending charges in some off-street car parks in both towns on Thursdays from 3pm on 14, 21 and 28 November and 5, 12 and 19 December, and on Sundays from 11am to 4pm on 1, 8, 15 and 22 December.

The council’s portfolio holder for legal, democratic and governance, Cllr Tony Randerson (Lab), gave the annual measure the green light today.

In Scarborough, the car parks included are Castle Road, Falconers Road, Friarsway, North Street, North Terrace, St Nicholas Parade, St Thomas Street, Victoria Road, Westwood and William Street.

In Whitby Church Street, Cliff Street, Marina Back, Marina Front, Endeavour Wharf and St Hilda’s Terrace will all be available to shoppers.

The cost to the council of free parking is estimated at £12,000.
