Free Christmas parking on Saturdays in Salford

Salford City Council is hoping to give shops a boost by offering free parking in the lead up to Christmas.

Shoppers can use eight pay and display car parks in Eccles, Monton, Pendleton and Swinton for free on three Saturdays (9, 16 and 23) in December.

Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: “This is our way of spreading a bit of festive cheer and encouraging people to shop locally. I hope it gives our shops and local traders even more business in the run up to Christmas. We launched our social value impact report recently and every pound spent in Salford really does make a difference.”

The car parks included are:

  • Partington Street, Monton
  • John William Street, Eccles
  • Eccles Precinct
  • St Mary’s Road, Eccles
  • Irwell Place, Eccles
  • Barton Lane, Eccles
  • Hankinson Way, Salford
  • Church Street, Swinton

Notices will be posted on site during the week prior to the first Saturday. All other conditions of use of the car park, such as parking within properly marked bays and displaying a Blue Badge if you have one, still apply.
