Free Christmas parking

Salford City Council is hoping to give local shops a boost with free parking in the run up to Christmas.

Shoppers can use eight pay and display car parks in Eccles, Monton, Pendleton and Swinton for free on three Saturdays in December. They are Saturday 5 December, Saturday 12 December and Saturday 19 December.

Saturday 5 December is also national Small Business Saturday encouraging people to ‘search local, shop local’. Shoppers can find local retailers by searching by postcode and small businesses can register on the Small Business Saturday website.

Salford City Mayor Paul Dennett said: “It has been such a difficult year for small traders. I hope this encourages people to shop locally but safely to support Salford businesses.”

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 at these car parks. All other conditions for using the car park, such as parking within properly marked bays and displaying a Blue Badge if you have one, still apply.
