The £1 parking offer will be available all day on Saturdays in long stay car parks owned by the district council.

Councillor Gary Marsh, cabinet member for service delivery, said: “This is the most important time of the year for local retailers and we’re showing them our support by offering town centre parking all weekend for just £1 in the run up to Christmas.

“You can join us and show your support for the local economy this Christmas by shopping in your local town. Popping into town is quick and convenient way to pick up gifts for friends or family and with the great range of shops we have in Mid Sussex, there’s no reason to go anywhere else.

“I hope our parking offer encourages even more people to shop locally and attracts shoppers from other areas to spend their money in Mid Sussex.

“Don’t forget, our parking is free after 6pm every night of the week so Mid Sussex is a great place to enjoy an evening meal or meet up with friends during the festive season.”
