Free parking will return this year to offer shoppers a Christmas bonus.

Basildon Council will be offering shoppers free parking in its car parks from 20th to the 28th December in Billericay and other towns locally.

Car Parks covered by the free Christmas parking initiative include the car park behind Wickford High Street, Wickford Ladygate Centre, Wickford main, High Street Billericay and the Radford Crescent car park, also in Billericay.

The free Christmas parking only applies to the car parks stated and does not cover on-street parking.
