Free evening and overnight Dudley parking on the way
Free parking is coming to all Dudley Council owned car parks from the New Year. The new scheme comes into force on January 2, 2019 on Monday to Sunday from 7pm to 7am.
The free parking is not exclusive to just shoppers and is offered to residents living nearby, aimed at reducing the level of parking on the streets.
Councillor Khurshid Ahmed, cabinet member for environmental services, said:
“I’m really pleased that we are now only weeks away from free overnight parking coming into force.
“Traders and businesses are always asking us to do more to support them and with the success of our existing free parking initiative, which has supported the day time trade, I hope this latest scheme will give a significant boost to our night time economy and take the hassle out of finding somewhere to park for our visitors.”
The move will run alongside existing free parking arrangements, which allows people to park free for stays of up to two hours between 7am and 7pm on council-owned car parks.
