Free parking ~ Just The Ticket this summer

Motorists will be able to park for free after 3 pm on Wednesday afternoons in King’s Lynn during the summer holidays under a new scheme launched by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk.

The Free after Three parking promotion is one of a series of Just the Ticket parking promotions designed to support the local economy by encouraging people into the town at customarily quiet times.

Cllr Elizabeth Nockolds, Cabinet Member for Health and Wellbeing, said: “The idea was originally proposed during our Let’s Talk Shop events last year, when it was suggested that something should be done about parking to encourage visitors to the town.

“We now have new car parking machines in place that allow us to make such promotions available, and enable us to collate data so that we can see how successful they have been. People will still need to get a ticket by putting in their vehicle registration number – they just won’t need to pay if it’s between 3 pm and midnight on a Wednesday in the school holidays.”

Council officers have spoken with members of the Town Centre Partnership and the King’s Lynn Bid and the proposals have received support.

Cllr Nockolds added: “Free after Three is the first in a series of parking promotions that we have under consideration. We have set aside a budget of £100,000 to support these promotions, so once we start to get data back and can see how successful each initiative is, we can look at how we may be able to assist in the future.”

The Free after Three parking will start on Wednesday 31 July 2013 and take place every Wednesday up to, and including, Wednesday 4 September. It will mean that motorists can park free of charge between 3 pm and midnight during this period. The ticket will expire at midnight on Wednesday so anyone wishing to stay overnight (between midnight and 8 am) will need to pay the standard overnight parking fee of £1. To do this, if arriving after 3 pm, motorists will simply need to insert £1 after they have entered their registration number into the ticket machine. Instructions are printed on the car parking ticket machines.

The promotion applies to all council-run surface car parks in King’s Lynn, but not the multi-storey car park. All participating car parks will display a Just the Ticket notice. Motorists will need to display a valid ticket by entering their registration number into the parking machines.
