Christmas is coming ….. 

 

 

Sedgemoor District Council is pleased to announce that it will be offering free parking in all of its car parks for the three weekends before Christmas.

 

People will be able to park without charge in all eighteen of the Council-owned car parks across Sedgemoor on Saturday 5th, 12th and 19th December.

 

Especially given the additional impacts of Covid-19 on the local economy, Sedgemoor District Council is keen to support our many local and varied traders in the towns and villages across Sedgemoor and give residents and visitors an added incentive to shop locally in the festive season.

 

There will be notices on the tariff machines in the car parks advising of the free parking.

* PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL CORRESPONDENCE TO THE LOCAL PARISH COUNCIL SHOULD BE ADDRESSED TO THE CLERK - JIM MURRAY

Sedgemoor District Councils owns and operates eighteen car parks across the district with a total of 1,691 parking spaces.   It is estimated that the loss of income would be approximately ££4,600 per weekend.  Sedgemoor relies on income from the car park to help pay for the cost of running the car parks  such as business rates; CCTV; cleaning; looking after the shrubbery etc; repairs and maintenance to the tarmac; white-lining; maintenance/replacement of ticket machines; insurance and electricity costs for the lighting.
