Following recent pressures affecting the national economy and reports from local businesses about a slow down in trade, Malvern Hills District Council will be providing free car parking concessions in the week before Christmas.
From the 19th to the 24th December, pay and display charges will be waived in its car parks
Councillor Paul Cumming, Portfolio Holder for Finance & Resources at MHDC said:
“This council considers the support of local business and the local economy to be a priority and we are keen to assist local traders who have reported generally sluggish sales. We want to help give trade a boost and encourage more people to shop in our towns in the week leading up to Christmas. “
