The Leader of Havering council has today announced free parking for shoppers at weekends in the lead-up to Christmas.

Councillor Damian White said:

“I am pleased to announce that we are making it free to park in our carparks at the weekend from 30 November. This means that shoppers can enjoy our high streets, support our local shops, and buy Christmas presents and other goods and services.

So we want our residents to support our local shops and use them. We hope that offering free parking at the weekends in the lead up to, and just after, Christmas, will encourage them to make the trip and buy local.”

HornchurchLife spoke to Councillor Gillian Ford regarding the change, she said:

“The RA Councillors are pleased to hear the administration have adopted our proposal for free parking at Christmas. All they need to do now is listen to our proposal for 30 mins free parking.”

Free parking will begin on Saturday 30 November 2019 and be available every weekend until 5 January 2020.

This will only be available in council carparks. On street parking is not included.
