SODC has announced that they will offer free parking again in December in the run up to Christmas. In Henley the car parks will be free ALL DAY every Tuesday.
The annual free parking tradition is provided by the district council to encourage people to shop locally for their Christmas presents.
Free parking days are agreed with the individual town councils depending on which day would best suit local traders. 2015 marks the first year that parking will be free for an entire day each week, in previous years local councils had the option of choosing either a morning or afternoon.

Cllr Robert Simister, Cabinet Member for Property, Economic Development, Technical Services and Community Safety at South Oxfordshire District Council, said: “Traditional free Christmas parking is always very popular in South Oxfordshire. This year we’re allowing people to park for free for the entire day. Hopefully many will take advantage of this, not only to do their shopping locally but also to enjoy a meal at one of our independent cafes or restaurants.”
