Free parking!

Published : 09/12/2019

Shoppers can enjoy free parking in council-owned car parks in Ashford and Tenterden on Sundays before and after Christmas.

Ashford Borough Council is once again offering free parking in both towns to encourage as many people as possible to do their Christmas and sale shopping locally, and support local businesses.

Free parking will be available all day in council-run car parks in Ashford and Tenterden on the following days:

  • Sunday 15 December
  • Sunday 22 December*
  • Sunday 29 December
  • Sunday 5 January
    *The only exception will be Recreation Ground Road car park (Tenterden), where normal charges will apply on Sunday 22 December.

This seasonal parking offer is in addition to the existing free parking scheme that is available in selected council-run car parks at certain times, e.g. free after 3pm in Edinburgh Road. More details can be found via our free parking web page.

Don’t forget that all car parks run by Ashford Borough Council are free after 6pm all year round. After 6pm, you can also use the parking bays in Ashford High Street, North Street and Bank Street for free as charges don’t apply.
