Free Parking in Shrewsbury this April

Parking will be free from 8am to 6pm in all Shropshire Council car parks from 12 - 25 April [2021], to provide the county’s town centre traders with a welcome boost once the current lockdown ends

On-street parking charges will remain so that the parking bays can be used for those needing to use the 15 minutes’ ‘pop and shop’ free parking, and to provide short-stay and easy access to essential services in the town centres – especially for those who find it difficult to walk significant distances.

It’s hoped that the free parking will encourage people to visit local businesses once the current lockdown measures are eased in line with the government’s roadmap. If the reopening date moves from 12 April, the dates of this offer will be amended.

Parking is already free in all surface car parks after 6pm and, under this offer, Raven Meadows multi-storey will also remain free after 6pm and overnight.

Current season ticket and residents’ permits for Shropshire Council car parks will be extended by two weeks.
