PR2197/CO/MF - 26/11/2018

Mid Sussex District Council is providing all-day town centre parking for £1 on the weekends leading up to Christmas.

The Council is supporting shoppers and traders with discounted parking on Saturdays in the towns of Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Haywards Heath. The £1 parking offer will only be available in long stay car parks owned by Mid Sussex District Council.

Parking in Mid Sussex is completely free on Sundays, so that’s a whole weekend of shopping for less than the price of a loaf of bread. The parking discounts will be available from Saturday 1 December at the following locations:

Queens Crescent car park – Burgess Hill
Station Road car park – Burgess Hill
The Vicarage car park – East Grinstead
Norton House car park – East Grinstead
Franklynn Road car park – Haywards Heath
Muster Green car park – Haywards Heath

The £1 all day parking charge will apply on 1 December 2018, 8 December 2018, 15 December 2018 and 22 December 2018.

“This is the most important time of the year for local retailers and we’re showing them our support by offering town centre parking all weekend for just £1 in the run up to Christmas,” said Councillor Gary Marsh, Cabinet Member for Service Delivery.

“You can join us and show your support for the local economy this Christmas by shopping in your local town. Popping into town is quick and convenient way to pick up gifts for friends or family and with the great range of shops we have in Mid Sussex, there’s no reason to go anywhere else.

“I hope our parking offer encourages even more people to shop locally and attracts shoppers from other areas to spend their money in Mid Sussex.

“Don’t forget, our parking is free after 6pm every night of the week so Mid Sussex is a great place to enjoy an evening meal or meet up with friends during the festive season.”
