Christmas Car Parking Extended

In a move to attract more Christmas shoppers into the borough, I have managed to get the free parking concession extended to all car parks run by Southend Council.

Parking charges are being waived from 4pm on Thursdays and all day on Sundays throughout December and drivers will now be able to park free of charge at all council managed car parks in Southend, rather than just those in the town centre.

Christmas shoppers and people visiting Southend during the festive season can spend more time enjoying what our town has to offer without worrying about car park charges. I hope retailers will reap the benefit of the extended free parking arrangements, especially so in light of the large turnout at last weekend’s Christmas lights switch-on.
