Saturdays just got cheaper, free car parking boost


FREE parking will be introduced on Saturday afternoons in all district council car parks – including Thame.

Starting on Saturday, April 14, parking will be free to everyone on Saturday afternoons, from either 2pm or 3pm depending on the car park, in addition to any free period currently offered.

The new parking initiative is in line with Mary Portas’ recent review into the future of our high streets, which recommended that local areas should use parking schemes to help boost high street trade.

New Saturday afternoon free period will start at 2pm in both the Thame Cattlemarket and the Southern Road (behind the Co-Op) car parks.

The new parking scheme is in addition to the newly introduced half price car park season tickets for those working in the district

People are asked to check the individual car park tariff and signage. For more visit
