Free parking days during festive season

Residents are being encouraged to enjoy the festive season in their local town as Cornwall Council offers free parking on selected days in car parks across Cornwall.
People will be able to park for free locally on a day selected by their city, town or parish council to support Christmas events, shop locally and enjoy local cafes and restaurants.
Cornwall Council contacted city, town and parish councils to offer the initiative which will result in over 90 Cornwall Council run car parks, which usually charge for parking, being free for one day. Some town and parish councils are offering additional free parking days.
Many towns have chosen their date to encourage people to come along to festive events they already have planned.  Others have selected Saturday 07 December as their free parking day to coincide with the annual Small Business Saturday – a national initiative that has been running for the past seven years.
All Cornwall Council car parks are clearly branded and the Council will be displaying posters about the parking offer at charging points on the day when parking is free.
If the car park is one of the ‘pay on exit’ car parks, you should take a ticket from the entrance barrier as usual.  On departure please insert your ticket into the machine by the exit barrier. If you have only parked on the free parking day, the barrier will open to allow you to exit. If you have stayed for longer than the free parking day, any additional parking fee will need to be paid for before you drive up to the exit barrier.
