Free parking to remain at White Shops until March

The district council says free parking will remain at its car park at the White Shops in Catterick Garrison.

Members of the council’s corporate board were told last night that the concession will continue throughout the roadworks.

Councillor Yvonne Peacock Leader of the Council said: “We introduced free parking at our Hildyard Row car park in response to concerns from the local community.

“We will be leaving that in place until next March to help businesses over the busy Christmas period – and give them and shoppers certainty during this time.”

The roadworks are due to be completed by November 24.

A spokesman for North Yorkshire County Council’s highways department said: “We are continually discussing the overall impact of any works and should there be any change to the completion date this will be communicated via the weekly update.”
