Free off-street parking every day in December

Free Christmas Parking at participating off-street car parks all day from Wednesday 1 December to Friday 31 December

Christmas shoppers will be able to enjoy free car parking every day in December in Scarborough and Whitby.

We are supporting the retail community to bounce back from the challenges of Christmas 2020 by suspending charges in some of our off-street car parks all day from Wednesday 1 December to Friday 31 December.

We are hoping that for those who cannot walk or take public transport to the town centres, the free parking will encourage them to spend their Christmas pounds locally instead of travelling further afield or paying for deliveries online.

In Scarborough, the free parking offer applies to the following off-street car parks: Castle Road, Falconers Road, Friarsway, North Street, North Terrace, St Nicholas Parade, St Thomas Street, Victoria Road, Westwood and William Street.

In Whitby, free parking will be available at Church Street, Cliff Street, Endeavour Wharf, Marina Back, Marina Front and St Hilda’s Terrace car parks.

Charges will apply in all other car parks and to on-street parking.

Our car parks in Filey and the borough’s coastal villages are already free at this time of year.

Cllr Tony Randerson, cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said:

"After the challenges and uncertainty of the last twenty months, our local businesses need our support more than ever this Christmas.

"If free parking is an incentive that makes the difference between someone spending their money in our borough’s fantastic independent shops as opposed to online or in York, Leeds or Middlesbrough, then it’s worth doing and is something we are more than happy to offer."
