Free parking this festive season in High Peak

Published on 16 November 2022

Free parking is once again being offered in Borough Council car parks in the run-up to Christmas in a boost for shoppers and businesses.

High Peak Borough Council has agreed to make parking free to support the light switch-on events in Buxton on Saturday 19 November and Glossop on Saturday 26 November.

Drivers can also park without charge in Borough Council car parks in Buxton, Glossop and New Mills on every December Saturday up to and including Christmas Eve.

Councillor Damien Greenhalgh, Deputy Leader and Executive Councillor for Regeneration, Tourism and Leisure, said: "This Christmas we're all mindful of our budgets and ensuring we're spending our money wisely.

"So I'm pleased that we're able to help a little with seasonal costs by waiving parking charges in our town centres on dates in the run up to the big day to encourage people to come and shop and enjoy leisure time in our towns and to support our local businesses and traders.

"The High Peak is a great place to shop for festive gifts and Christmas treats, or to meet up with friends and families to celebrate the season, so I hope people take advantage of this offer, shop our fantastic local shops and put our Borough on their lists as the place to visit this year."

Whilst parking is free, other regulations, such as how long you can park for, will apply.
