Free Parking delivered

Residents and visitors to Bognor Regis will be able to enjoy parking for free for three more years, following Arun District Council's Lib Dem cabinet member Cllr Matt Stanley's agreement.

The extension for three years has been made covering three of the town's car parks. This is the first time the scheme has been extended for more than a year, since it began in 2012. The extension was agreed after a request by Bognor Regis Business Improvement District's (BID) Directors.

Cllr Stanley said "Extending the disc parking scheme until 2022 is really important because it demonstrates Arun District Council's commitment to the ongoing improvement of Bognor Regis town centre.

"It also recognises Bognor Regis BID's need for consistency as well as the valuable role they play in helping the town centre evolve."

The scheme covers Lyon street, Hothamton, and Fitzleet multi-storey car parks. For £2 the discs entitle people to park for up to two hours as many times as they like in the year.

Jason Passingham, BID's chairman, welcomed the decision "We are very grateful that Arun and Bognor Regis Town council support the discs to help the town. The two hour free parking is well supported by the people of Bognor Regis.

"The more people who buy the discs and use them to park in the town the better it will be for the town centre and the businesses in it."
