The move is to allow more visitors and residents to support local businesses.

Selby District Council Leader Coun Mark Crane, said: “This has been a hard year for local businesses, especially those who had to close in November.

“Now more than ever our local shops need our help. Providing three hours free parking on Saturdays throughout December is one way in which we are helping businesses recovery.

“I encourage residents to consider their local independent businesses when doing their Christmas shopping this year.”

He added: “Retailers across the district have worked hard to adapt to the pandemic and make their properties Covid secure.

“Their hard work is to ensure that all shoppers are safe.

“The three-hour limit is to bring as much trade as possible into our high street and help build the local economy.”

From January 2021 all machines in Council car parks in Selby will be improved.

The new machines will allow people to pay for their parking by card as well as cash.

There will be changes to the car parking charges in Selby from next year. To find out more about this changes visit our website: https://www.selby.gov.uk/council-car-parks.
