Haringey Council will bring Christmas cheer to the high street this year with free parking for three days before Christmas.
On Saturday 22 December and on Christmas Eve, Monday 24 December, free parking will be available for shoppers in all car parks and in dedicated pay and display parking areas.
With Sunday parking already free this means the whole weekend's parking will cost nothing in Haringey shopping areas.
Cllr Nilgun Canver, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said:
"We know times are tough for traders and people have a lot of bulky shopping to pick up for Christmas, so I hope this free parking will help attract shoppers to their local high street.
"We’re announcing this now to give people time to order their turkeys or presents from high street shops, or look at what else is on offer locally for them to order and collect nearer to Christmas."
Parking restrictions will still apply to Resident Only Bays and Shared Use Bays on 22 and 24 December and enforcement will still take place on footways, double yellow lines and zig-zags.
