Free parking boost for Bognor’s festive shoppers

FESTIVE free parking will be back in Bognor Regis.

The free spaces will be available in the Arun District Council-run Fitzleet multi-storey car park during the four Saturdays before Christmas.

The district council’s leader, Gillian Brown, said: “I am delighted Arun District Council is helping families, shoppers and local businesses by providing free all day parking on the last four Saturdays leading up to Christmas.

“Household budgets are stretched a little more at Christmas time and we hope that by providing free parking on these important shopping days we attract more people to come into the town centre to help the small shops and the local economy.”

The agreement, which was set up by the district council and the Bognor Regis and District Chamber of Commerce, has run successfully for a number of years.

The free parking starts on Saturday and follows on December 6, 13 and 20.
