East Hampshire District Council is helping Christmas get off to the best possible start by offering free parking this weekend, to coincide with local festive events.
At the beginning of the crucial Christmas shopping period the council is removing car parking charges as an early gift for visitors.
Petersfield car parks will be free on Sunday 1 December, to coincide with the Hometown Christmas Festival. (The Tesco Car Park in Petersfield is not included).
In Alton parking will be free on Saturday 30 November, for the Santa Run, and Sunday 1 December for the Yuletide Festival.
Council car parks outside Petersfield and Alton are always free, all year round.
Parking meters will be bagged and clearly signed on the dedicated days. Penalty Charge Notices will still be issued if cars are parked improperly or in disabled bays.
