Parking charges will be waived at council-operated car parks in Clitheroe and Longridge town centres on three Saturdays in December.

Free parking will be on offer for up to four hours at council-operated car parks in Clitheroe town centre and the Barclay Road car park in Longridge on Saturdays December 7th, 14th and 21st.

Ribble Valley Borough Council leader Stuart Hirst said the council was delighted to do its bit to boost trade during the festive season.

“The council has been offering free festive parking at its car parks for some years now and the initiative has proved a great success,” he said.

“A lot of hard work goes into making Christmas in Ribble Valley special and we hope shoppers from throughout Lancashire will take advantage of the free parking to visit the area and see what its unique, independent shops have to offer.”

Charges will be waived at council-operated car parks in the two town centres, but normal charges will apply to the Edisford Road car park in Clitheroe and village car parks in Ribble Valley.

The free parking is available for up to four hours per vehicle. Information on the location of council car parks in Ribble Valley is available at www.ribblevalley.gov.uk
