Preston’s new short stay car park

One hour’s free parking will be available at two Preston city centre car parks from this Saturday (9 May).

Preston City Council has announced the four-week offer in a bid to help businesses and essential shopping in Preston.

The council says it’s doing all it can to help support residents and businesses in the city centre during the coronavirus pandemic.

The offer will be available at Avenham multi-storey car park and on the Tenterfield Street short stay car park, which is designed to help anyone shopping at Preston Markets.

‚ÄúPeople need to visit the city centre for essential shopping and we hope this helps in some way, but would remind everyone to follow the current social distancing guidelines and stay two metres apart. As an authority, the safety of the public will remain our primary concern.‚ÄĚ
