Parking in Newtown will be free on two Saturdays in the lead up to Christmas, it has been announced.
 
The initiative, which follows previous successful free parking schemes, will provide free parking on Saturday, 10 and Saturday, 17 December between 10am-6pm.

The free parking will be available at the Back Lane and Gravel car parks in the town.

It will also include other Powys County Council car parks in Montgomeryshire.

The scheme is being funded by the council’s leader not taking his full salary entitlement.
 
Cllr John Brunt, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “I am pleased to confirm that the council’s free car parking initiative will run for the two key shopping days in the run-up to Christmas.
 
“The scheme, which I am sure is welcomed by shoppers and businesses alike, will provide free parking on these two key shopping days before Christmas.”
 
The initiative only applies to off-street car parks and does not alter existing on-street parking restrictions. Free parking in short stay car parks is only applicable for a maximum of two hours.
