Parking will be free in all Ceredigion County Council operated Pay and Display car parks on the three Saturdays before Christmas this year.

The Council has confirmed this week that parking charges at council operated Pay and Display car parks will be waived on 4, 11 and 18 December 2021.

Councillor Dafydd Edwards, Cabinet Member for Highways and Environmental Services, Housing and Customer Contact said: “As Ceredigion businesses are busy gearing up for Christmas, they’re having to do so whilst competing against the lure of big online multinational companies.

"We want to do what we can to support Ceredigion businesses and hope that free parking on a Saturday in the lead up to Christmas will persuade more of us to shop locally. Enjoy what fantastic Ceredigion businesses have to offer.”

A statement from Ceredigion County Council said: "This decision by the Council’s Cabinet contributes towards one of the Council’s corporate priorities of boosting the economy."
