Park for £1 all day in Mid Sussex this Christmas

PR 2077/CO/EM - 11/11/2016

Mid Sussex District Council is encouraging people to shop locally and support their community by reducing parking to £1 every Saturday before Christmas in December.


In the run up to Christmas, shoppers won’t have to worry about parking prices in specific long stay car parks across Mid Sussex. Mid Sussex District Council is providing discounted parking on Saturdays to support local shoppers and traders. As parking on Sundays is already free, it will cost just £1 to park in the Franklynn Road, Queens Crescent, Station Road, the Vicarage or Norton House car parks for the whole weekend.


“Christmas is a really important time for local shops and it’s vital that we show them our support by doing our present shopping locally in our towns when we can.,” said Councillor Gary Marsh, Cabinet Member for Service Delivery. “We are aiming to spread Christmas cheer and good will to residents and those visiting from outside of Mid Sussex, so take advantage of our £1 offer and shop locally this Christmas.”


Short stay car parks in Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Haywards Heath will also be free after 1pm on the day of the Christmas light switch-on. To support these town events you won’t have to pay during the afternoon on:
