Free December Parking in Ashford and Tenterden


Festive shoppers can enjoy free parking in all council-owned car parks in Ashford and Tenterden on three Sundays before Christmas.

Ashford Borough Council is once again offering free parking in both towns to encourage as many people as possible to do their Christmas shopping locally, and support local businesses.

Free parking will be available (council-run car parks only) on the following days:

Sunday 8th December

Sunday 15th December

Sunday 22nd December

There will be free parking from 2pm on Friday 6th December in Tenterden as it is late night shopping until 9pm.

Portfolio holder for transportation, highways and engineering Cllr Bernard Heyes said: “We are pleased to once again offer free parking on select Sundays on the run up to Christmas.
“This is the busiest shopping period of the year, and we want residents to spend in and support their home town wherever possible – and for visitors to see what Ashford has to offer on the weekends as well.”

The pay and display machines in affected car parks will not be covered, but notices about the free parking will be clearly displayed in the car park.
