Free weekend parking for Wyre residents this December

    Residents in Wyre can take advantage of free parking across the borough every Friday and Saturday in December.

    In a bid to boost footfall and sales on the high streets and to make it easier for residents and visitors to get out and socialise, Wyre Council will make all council owned car parks free on Fridays and Saturdays during December.

    Free Parking dates

    Friday 2 and Saturday 3 December

    Friday 9 and Saturday 10 December

    Friday 16 and Saturday 17 December

    Friday 23 and Saturday 24 December

    Residents and visitors will be able to park for free for 3 hours in long stay car parks and 2 hours in short stay car parks. If you buy a ticket or use your residents parking permit (except Rough Lea Road & North Promenade) then the 3 hours free time will automatically be added on to the normal expiry time.

    Cllr Roger Berry, portfolio holder for Neighbourhood Services and Community Safety, said: ‘’This is a great opportunity for residents and visitors to have easy access to our high streets for their festive shopping and socialising.

    ‘’We want to make it as easy as we can for everyone to prepare for the festive period so go out, meet friends, buy presents and most of all have a wonderful festive time.”
