Good news for shoppers in Newtown in the lead up to Christmas, with free parking announced by Powys County Council.

Free car parking will be on offer at Powys County Council’s Back Lane and Gravel car parks for two key shopping days in the run-up to Christmas.

The free parking will apply at all of its pay and display car parks in Powys, including Welshpool.

The festive initiative, which follows previous successful free parking schemes, will provide free parking on Saturday 16 and Saturday 23 December between 10am-6pm. 

Councillor Liam Fitzpatrick, Cabinet Member for Highways, said; “I am delighted to be able to confirm that the council’s free car parking initiative will run for the two key shopping days in the run-up to Christmas.

“We know that the scheme will be welcomed by shoppers and businesses alike and will provide a timely boost to the county’s economy in the run-up to the busiest shopping period of the year.

“The county’s economy is vital to everyone and the festive period can make a real difference to countless businesses, so any help to increase spend has to be worthwhile.” 

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.
