In Focus

Key issues on the agenda.

“I’m pleased that Petersfield Town Council decided to cover the cost of the free parking this year. Hopefully it will provide local businesses with a much-needed boost in these exceptional times.”

Petersfield Town Mayor, Cllr Phil Shaw

Petersfield Town Council has teamed up with East Hampshire District Council (EHDC) to provide free parking in the town to encourage gift shopping in the build up to Christmas.

“I’m very happy to be working with the town council to provide this free parking.

“I encourage residents to shop locally, particularly with independent retailers where they can, when buying Christmas gifts.”

Cllr Ingrid Thomas, EHDC portfolio holder for Neighbourhood Quality


While there will be posters in the participating car parks, ticket machines will not be covered and RingGo will still accept payments. East Hampshire District Council is unable to refund any payments made during the free parking period or unused time paid that overlaps with it.

*Free parking will be available in Swan Street car park from 10am – 2pm every Saturday from 27 November to 18 December 2021 to support the Christmas markets in the town.

"I'm privileged to be taking the reins as we move cautiously out of lockdown. I'm looking forward to getting out and about meeting Petersfield's residents and in particular those who have worked or volunteered in whatever capacity to support others through these unprecedented times. I expect the next twelve months to be busy and I'm really looking forward to it."
