Free parking is once again being offered in district council car parks across the Moorlands in the run-up to Christmas.
Staffordshire Moorlands District Council has agreed to make parking free to support the lights switch-on event in Biddulph tonight (Saturday).
Drivers can park without charge in car parks in all three towns on every December Saturday up to and including Christmas Eve.
Coun James Aberley, Cabinet member for customer services, said: “This Christmas, we’re all mindful of our budgets and ensuring we’re spending our money wisely.
“I’m pleased that we’re able to help a little with seasonal costs by waiving parking charges on dates in the run up to the big day to encourage people to come and shop and enjoy leisure time in our towns and to support our local businesses and traders.
“The Moorlands is a great place to shop for festive gifts and Christmas treats, or to meet up with friends and families to celebrate the season, so I hope people take advantage of this offer and put Biddulph, Cheadle and Leek on their lists as places to visit this year.”
While parking is free, other regulations, such as how long people can park for, will apply.
