An early present from Croydon Council will make it easier for residents to prepare for and enjoy the festive season.
Pay and display charges in council-run car parks and on-street bays will be relaxed on specific days around Christmas and New Year.
These spaces will be free of all parking enforcement on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day.
Parking charges in areas not controlled by the council will still apply and yellow-line, bus land and footway restrictions will still be enforced.
Normal parking enforcement will take place from 27 to 30 December and will resume from Wednesday 2 January 2019.
“By making it easier to park in our borough we hope to make the holiday season a little bit better for everyone.
“Our residents, shoppers and anyone visiting the borough can enjoy these extra allowances but drivers will still need to park considerately, showing consideration for other road users and pedestrians.”
Councillor Stuart King, cabinet member for environment, transport and regeneration
