A PETITION has been launched calling for free parking in a town centre over Christmas.Business owner Martin Needham has set-up the online petition which calls for Blackburn with Darwen Council to suspend charges for people heading into the town during the festive period.
He said it would ‘help stimulate business growth and ease costs for shoppers’.
Currently parking is free on all council-owned car parks within Blackburn town centre on Sundays and bank holidays.
But Mr Needham said he would like to see free parking in the weeks either side of Christmas Day to give shoppers and businesses some festive cheer.
