Christmas has come early for residents in Barnet who will be treated to free parking over the next three weekends as part of the festive season.

Barnet Council’s policy and resources committee agreed on Tuesday to waive parking fees in all Barnet town centres and council-run car parks over the next three weekends.

Haringey Council will offer free car parking tomorrow, as part of national initiative Small Business Saturday, but has no plans for free Christmas parking.

Camden Council has also ruled out free parking.

The council claims there is no evidence that free parking increases shopping numbers.
