Councillor Craig Collingswood, the council’s cabinet member for environment and climate change, said: “With the current Cost of Living crisis and money not going as far as it used to for everyone at the moment, I am pleased that the city council is able to help with these car parking offers. 

“At what can be a very expensive time, help to cut costs is always welcome, whether you’re parking up to go Christmas shopping or to visit one of the many seasonal council events we have going on.

“I encourage everyone to make the most of their money and use our car parking offers to help make their festive shopping and fun that little bit more cost effective.”
