Free parking for Christmas shopping in Petersfield

Monday, 22 November, 2021

Petersfield Town Council has teamed up with East Hampshire District Council (EHDC) to provide free parking in the town to encourage gift shopping in the build up to Christmas.

Free parking will be available in Swan Street car park from 10am to 2pm every Saturday from 27 November to 18 December 2021 to support the Christmas markets in the town.

Cllr Ingrid Thomas, EHDC portfolio holder for Neighbourhood Quality, said:

“I’m very happy to be working with the town council to provide this free parking.

“I encourage residents to shop locally, particularly with independent retailers where they can, when buying Christmas gifts.”


While there will be posters in the participating car parks, ticket machines will not be covered and RingGo will still accept payments.

East Hampshire District Council is unable to refund any payments made during the free parking period or unused time paid that overlaps with it.
