Town Council wants free parking
Newbury Town Council is pressing West Berkshire Council to re-introduce free parking to the town centre.
Cllr Billy Drummond raised the point during a meeting of the Planning and Highways Committee on Monday evening in an effort to support local businesses.
He suggested offering as much as two hours free to help the Town to get back on its feet over the next six months.
The Town Council will look to raise the point with West Berkshire Council and Newbury Business Improvement District.
Cllr David Marsh suggested that people would come back to the Town anyway when the shops re-open.
