Notice from Wiltshire Council: revised parking charges

Recently, the Town Council was notified of proposed changes to parking charges meaning free parking would no longer be available on Sundays.

Town Councillors lobbied against the introduction of new charging regime, though were unable to stop it. However, despite originally refusing, Wiltshire Council did eventually agree to secure two days free Christmas parking which will take place on 1st & 8th December.

We have since received the following notice from Wiltshire Council outlining changes to parking charges within the county:
