Extra hour bonus for drivers to boost late night Xmas shopping
Drivers in Stone are going to have an extra hour’s free parking so they can take advantage of late night shopping in the town.
Stafford Borough Council wants to encourage motorists to support local shops which are opening until 8pm on Thursday (12 December).
Normally motorists are charged until 6pm to leave their cars on the three council-run car parks. But Councillor Frances Beatty said she hoped letting people park for free from five o’clock will keep people in town after work and encourage others to come in early.
The borough Council runs the town’s Christchurch Way...
