Wiltshire Council has announced parking charges on Sundays will be suspended.

You won't have to pay £1.90 to park in the city on Sunday any more, FREE parking is back! 

The move has been announced as part of a £8 million pound commitment to support towns and communities.

The 12 month programme will deliver improvements to local highway maintenance including repair of potholes, improve white lining, weed removal, kerb and pavement improvements, verges and improved road signage will be implemented.

The council will use new funding allocated from Government recently, along with its own funding to deliver these significant improvements.

Sunday charges will be scrapped in all Wiltshire Council run car parks with effect from this Sunday (25th November).

Pauline Church, cabinet member for economic development said:

"This re-affirms our commitment to supporting our high streets and local businesses. We need to do all we can to encourage shoppers and visitors across the county, particularly as we head into the important festive period.

"This programme of highway improvements, combined with the suspension of charging for parking on Sundays, sends a robust message that we are committed to supporting the local economy and that we listen and respond."

HOW LONG WILL FREE PARKING ON SUNDAY LAST:

There's no confirmed end date but a Wiltshire Council spokesperson told Spire FM:

 "We will undertake a regular review on how long to suspend Sunday parking charges for."

OTHER PARKING CHANGES:

It's not all good news, parking on a Bank Holiday will now cost you the same as weekday charges.

Season tickets are going up and on-street residents permits will be moving to a two-tier charging system.
