Free parking on offer at Lichfield car park

carparksignShoppers and visitors to Lichfield are being offered the chance to park for free at a city car park.

The Lombard Street car park will be free to visitors from 3pm every day during March, Lichfield District Council has confirmed.

Councillor Louise Flowith, Lichfield District Council’s Cabinet Member for Operational Services, said:

“Since the multi-storey car park closed, we’ve been carrying out daily checks on all our car parks to find out if they are filling up. These have shown that it is easy to find a space in Lombard Street, which is why we are running this promotion. We hope it will encourage people, who perhaps haven’t used Lombard Street Car Park before, to give it a go. We’re also confident that once visitors start using it, they will realise how convenient it is for city centre shopping.”

    I used to shop weekly at lichfield, prefering to park free around the outskirts and walking in,( as a keep fit campaign) I drove through today (8/03/10) and found yet more new double yellow lines, presumably to try and herd every motorist/shopper into your relatively very expensive car parks.
    I now shop in Tamworth, – park up and walk in, so Lichfield city centre, you have lost my Trade
