Shoppers have been given an early Christmas present from the council as it plans to suspend car parking charges in Eastwood and Kimberley.
There will be no charge at any Broxtowe Borough Council car park in the two towns on each of the four Saturdays in December in a bid to encourage townsfolk to shop locally.
The first free parking day is Saturday December 7 and the last is Saturday 28.
The three-hour maximum stay still applies in all the council’s short stay car parks and enforcement officers will still be on duty to ensure drivers stick to it.
There is no need to obtain a free ticket from the machines during the free parking periods.
