Falmouth and Penryn shoppers can enjoy free parking in Cornwall Council car parks on Small Business Saturday.

Small Business Saturday on Saturday, December 4th, is a grassroots campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to 'shop local' and support small businesses in their communities.

Cornwall Council cabinet portfolio holder for transport Philip Desmonde said:

"In the run-up to the festive season, we’re keen to support local economies by encouraging residents to responsibly visit their local high street, shop in local small businesses, eat-in cafes and restaurants, and enjoy the kind of experience that you don’t get shopping online."

All Cornwall Council car parks are clearly branded, and there will be posters about the parking offer at charging points on the free parking day.

If the car park is one of the ‘pay on exit’ car parks, you should take a ticket from the entrance barrier as usual. When leaving the car park, insert your ticket into the machine by the exit barrier.

Shoppers can look forward to free parking on Small Business Saturday.

If you have only parked on the free parking day, the barrier will open to allow you to exit. If you have stayed for longer than the free parking day, any additional parking fee will need to be paid for before you drive up to the exit barrier.
