Free parking for Small Business Saturday

Isle of Wight Council is offering free off-street parking in all its long-stay car parks to support Small Business Saturday – which aims to promote the important role small businesses play in our towns and the island economy.

All long stay car parks run by the council will be free of charge between 12pm and 6pm on Saturday 3 December. A full list of car parks can be found here.   

In addition, car parks in Ventnor (enforced by the Isle of Wight Council on behalf of Ventnor Town Council) will be free in their car parks (Shore Rd, Market St, Pound Lane, Dudley Rd) from 12pm to 6pm.

Pier Square car park in Yarmouth (enforced by the Isle of Wight Council on behalf of Yarmouth Harbour Commission) will also be free between 12pm and 6pm.

Cabinet lead for Highways PFI, Transport and Infrastructure, Councillor Phil Jordan, said: "We're very pleased to offer this helping hand to both businesses and shoppers in the run up to Christmas so that people can enjoy their visits to our towns for no additional costs of parking. 
 
“In the past it has been very successful, and we encourage residents and visitors to take advantage of the generous offer once again this year"

Small Business Saturday is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to 'shop local' and support small businesses in their communities.

The day itself takes place on the first Saturday in December each year, but the campaign aims to have a lasting impact on small businesses.
On Small Business Saturday, customers across the UK go out and support all types of small businesses, online, in offices and in stores. Many small businesses take part in the day by hosting events and offering discounts.
