Shoppers will have even longer to stock up on fabulous festive goodies and tantalising treats this Christmas, as Test Valley Borough Council is set to offer one hour’s free parking this December.
Visitors will be able to make use of the offer on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 30 November to 16 December and will need to purchase a minimum of one hour’s parking in any Test Valley Borough Council car park to qualify. They then need to display the Christmas voucher on their dashboard alongside a valid pay and display ticket to get another hour free. The voucher can also be used with a Ringo payment.
The Council’s car parks continue to be free to use after 4pm, so during the offer period visitors will be able to stay in town from 2pm until late for just 90 pence! Shoppers in Andover can collect vouchers from the Council’s Beech Hurst office or The Lights theatre, while Romsey shoppers can pick theirs up from the Former Magistrates’ Court. Participating retailers in both towns will be displaying a poster in their window to notify the public that vouchers can also be collected from their shops too.
Retailers can contact their Town Centre Manager for vouchers to hand out to their customers.
Alternatively, vouchers can be downloaded by clicking here or cut out from the autumn issue of Test Valley News which was distributed to all households from late October.
Planning Policy and Transport Portfolio Holder, Councillor Martin Hatley, said: “The car park voucher scheme is now in its third year and is very popular with our residents. The scheme helps to boost the local economy by encouraging people to shop in our towns for longer and take advantage of the range of unique shops as well as favourite high street brands. In addition to the fantastic voucher scheme, our car parks continue to be free on Sundays and bank holidays throughout the year which is another great incentive to visit and shop in our towns.”
