Parking incentive in Chichester to help support local businesses this Christmas

Chichester District Council has announced that it will be introducing a package of parking incentives to encourage people to support local businesses this Christmas.

Here's how you can get free parking:

  • select two hours and get a third free in most council-owned car parks across the district during December when using the MiPermit app.
  • free parking every weekend in December in the Avenue de Chartres car park in Chichester.
  • free parking after 4pm in the Avenue de Chartres car park for the Christmas light switch on and late night shopping events in Chichester.

The parking offers will form part of the council's Support Local campaign, which is being supported by The Observer Series, V2 Radio, Chichester Business Improvement District (Chichester BID), The Great Sussex Way, Chichester City Council, Chichester Chamber of Commerce, Petworth Business Association, Petworth Town Council, Midhurst Town Council, Midhurst Town Team, East Wittering and Bracklesham Parish Council, East Wittering and Bracklesham Local Business Alliance, Selsey Town Council, the University of Chichester, Chichester College and Love Where You Live.

"The past two years have been incredibly tough for our local businesses, and so it is vital that we all play our part by shopping locally and supporting our local businesses wherever we can this Christmas," says Cllr Tony Dignum, Cabinet Member for Growth, Place and Regeneration at Chichester District Council.

"As part of our annual Support Local Christmas campaign, we have pulled together a package of parking incentives to further encourage people to use local shops and businesses. This is one of many things we will be doing as we start to approach Christmas in order to support our local businesses.

"We are really pleased to say that partners from across the district will again be helping us to deliver this important campaign this year. Last year's campaign was a huge success and we want to build on this even further this year. By working together, we can all make a difference."

The council and its partners will make further announcements on the run up to the Christmas period as part of the Support Local campaign.
