Barnet Council’s Christmas gift of free parking
- Parking, roads and pavements
Shopping will be more enjoyable this holiday season with Barnet Council providing shoppers and visitors with free parking throughout the borough every weekend this December.
For the fourth year running, everyone using Barnet’s High Streets will be able to park for free in pay-to-park bays and at Council owned car parks during the month.
The free parking period starts on Small Business Saturday, 1st December, which is considered the biggest day of the year for small businesses across the country.
Councillor Dean Cohen, Chairman of Barnet Council’s Environment Committee, said: “We are delighted to support local businesses at the busiest, most important time of year for our High Streets. I’m glad we can offer Barnet residents and our visitors the opportunity to park for free each weekend this December. This is an initiative we have successfully run in the past three years.”
The dates for free parking are:
- 1 – 2 December
- 8 – 9 December
- 15 – 16 December
- 22 – 23 December
- 29 – 30 December
Please note that free parking only applies to Council operated ‘paid-for’ parking areas. It does not apply to permit bays or private car parks. Valid permits will still be required at these locations.
