Salford council have announced that every Saturday before Christmas, parking will be free in selected car parks in the hopes of giving local shops a business boost.

Shoppers will be able to use seven pay and display car parks in Eccles, Monton, Pendleton and Swinton for free until the final Saturday before Christmas.

The dates are the 4th, 11th, and 18th of December, and in the first week it’s small business Saturday so we can expect to see a big turnout for small shops across the city.

The car parks included are the following:
Partington Street, Monton
John William Street, Eccles
Eccles Precinct
St Mary’s Road, Eccles
Hankinson Way, Salford
Church street, Swinton

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.”

Although parking is free on these days, other rules are still set in place.

These consist of parking within properly marked bays and displaying a blue badge if you have one.
