Councillor Patricia Hetherton, Cabinet Member for City Services, said: “We hope that by allowing people to park for free, we can encourage people to shop safely this Christmas, supporting both businesses and retailers inside the city centre and out.”

“It also means people can choose where they want to park, maybe choosing car parks which are normally quieter than others to allow for more social distancing.

“Of course, if you are visiting any shops, please do remember to follow guidelines and remember, Hands, Face, Space to help everyone stay safe this Christmas.”
