As part of the Christmas festivities and to support local businesses Kettering Borough Council is offering additional free parking in the Town Centre in December.

The measures, approved by Kettering Borough Council’s Executive Committee, are additional to the free parking that already operates in council owned car parks on Sundays (all day) and evenings (after 6pm).

In addition to these existing arrangements, free car parking will also take place on the following days:

all day on Saturday 7th, 14th and 21st December 2013, and

after 3pm on Thursday 5th, 12th and 19th December 2013

Kettering Borough Council’s Portfolio Holder for Finance, Councillor Ian Jelley said: “We recognise that this is an important time of year for both families and businesses. We are encouraging people to support our local businesses and the Town Centre and believe offering a seasonal reduction in parking charges will make this easier.”
