Christmas shopping – and parking – all wrapped up in the high peak

Parking will be free again this year on every Saturday in December in all High Peak Borough Council car parks to give shoppers and businesses a boost over the festive season.

High Peak Borough Council is offering free parking in its pay and display car parks on Saturdays 2, 9, 16, 23 and 30 December to encourage people to support local businesses and shop local.

Deputy Leader of the Council, Damien Greenhalgh, said: “Christmas preparations are now well and truly underway and it’s a busy time of year for everyone.

“We want to support our residents, our towns and our local businesses during this period so we’re delighted to, once again, offer free parking every Saturday in December.

“Shopping local benefits us all and makes a big difference to our fabulous local traders, hospitality and leisure businesses – and this time of year is so important to them. That’s why we’re encouraging people to make High Peak their festive first choice for buying their Christmas gifts and treats and meeting up with friends and family to celebrate the season.”

Whilst parking is free, other regulations, such as how long you can park for, will apply.
