FREE Christmas Parking to benefit shoppers and businesses

Christmas car park sign

EAST RIDING COUNCIL will again be running its popular scheme which gives shoppers free parking in the run up to Christmas.

For the past three years, those preparing for Christmas by shopping in the East Riding have benefited as the council suspended parking charges at its car parks during the three weekends leading up to Christmas.

Once again, pay and display machines in the council’s car-parks and on-street parking locations will be clearly marked to let shoppers know there is no charge for these weekends leading up to Christmas.

Councillor Stephen Parnaby OBE, leader of East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: “For the past three years this initiative has helped to bring shoppers to the East Riding in the run up to Christmas. The council is still happy to promote schemes like this which have a real and tangible benefit to local businesses.”

The free parking will apply on:


  • Saturday 8th December
  • Saturday 15th December
  • Saturday 22nd December

…and Sundays

  • Sunday 9th December
  • Sunday 16th December
  • Sunday 23rd December

All council car parks will be free from 8am on Saturday until 8am on Monday.
