Free Christmas parking every weekend this December

Author: Brendan Steinhardt


Shopping will be more enjoyable this holiday season with Barnet Council providing shoppers and visitors with free parking throughout the borough this December.

Following positive results over the past two years, the council has again agreed to make free parking available every weekend in December.

Everyone using Barnet’s high streets will be able to park for free on pay-to-park bays and council owned car-parks during the month.
The free parking period starts on Small Business Saturday, 2 December, which is considered the biggest day of the year for small businesses in the country.
Councillor Dean Cohen, Chairman of Barnet Council’s Environment Committee, said: “This is a great way to give back to our community during the holiday season and encourages both residents and visitors to our region to come and explore the unique and diverse high streets we have in Barnet. It is an initiative we have successfully run in past years and I’m pleased it will once again be applied throughout the borough.”
The dates for free parking are:
  • 2/3 December
  • 9/10 December
  • 16/17 December
  • 23/24 December
  • 30/31 December
Please note that free parking only applies to council operated ‘paid-for’ parking areas. It does not apply to permit bays or private car parks. Valid permits will still be required at these locations.
