Free parking in Merton this Christmas!

Wimbledon Town Centre will once again benefit from Merton Council’s bid to encourage people to spend their money at local businesses by allowing free parking across the Borough throughout the Christmas season.

For the fifth year running, there will be free parking at most council-managed car parks each weekend up to and including Christmas. Free parking should benefit thousands of Christmas shoppers and will save the average Wimbledon shopper £6 for a four-hour shop on the free parking days.

Leader of the Council, Councillor Stephen Alambritis said: “Many people continue to face financially challenging times and at this time of year many of us could use a few extra pounds to spend on Christmas. We always work to make parking in Merton fair and affordable and hope that enabling people to park for free in council car parks will mean more people will spend their money locally.”
