Drivers will now be able to park in the town centre

As of today, residents and visitors in Mansfield will be able to take advantage of 30 minutes of free parking in the town centre.

Drivers parking in Mansfield District Council’s pay and display car parks will be able to park for free for 30 minutes.

And there’s more – Motorists will also get 3 hours’ worth of parking for the price of 2 at the Four Seasons and Walkden Street multi-storey car parks until March 31, 2016.

Drivers will soon be able to pay via their mobile phone with the new Cashless parking from October 2015 at Mansfield District Council’s 17 car parks.

The town’s Executive Mayor Kate Allsop said:

“These measures are all about boosting business and enabling our local economy to flourish.

“Offering an extra free hour when buying two hours car parking in our multi-storeys will encourage people to spend longer in the town centre, where they can make use of our excellent shopping facilities.”
