Free parking in Driffield

East Riding of Yorkshire Council will again be running its popular scheme which gives shoppers free parking in the run up to Christmas.

For the past three years, those preparing for Christmas by shopping in the East Riding have benefited as the council suspended parking charges at its car parks during the three weekends leading up to Christmas.

Once again, pay and display machines in the council’s car-parks and on-street parking locations will be clearly marked to let shoppers know there is no charge for these weekends leading up to Christmas.

Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “For the past three years this initiative has helped to bring shoppers to the East Riding in the run up to Christmas.

“The council is still happy to promote schemes like this which have a real and tangible benefit to local businesses.”

The free parking will apply on Saturday 8, 15 and 22 and Sunday 9, 16 and 23 December.

All council car parks will be free from 8am on Saturday until 8am on Monday.
