Council will provide free parking in Newbury to supply in increased pre-Christmas demand

WEST Berkshire Council is compensating for the closure of a town-centre car park this Saturday by providing free parking in Faraday Road.

The council is allowing Christmas shoppers to park free of charge in its former Faraday Road staff car park this Saturday, because the council car park in Market Street will be closed to improve pedestrian access.

The steps down to it - which also act as a thoroughfare for those using the station - are being widened.

The pavement alongside the ramp leading into the car park is also being widened and a raised crossover point is being installed.

From the start of December, shoppers will also be able to benefit from free parking every Saturday until Christmas Eve in the Market Street car park (from December 3 until December 24).

The council has indicated that since the opening of Parkway shopping centre, there has been an increase in the number of people driving into town to shop.
