Free Christmas parking in Bridgend County Borough

Shoppers, visitors and traders across Bridgend County Borough will be able to take advantage of free car parking this Christmas.

Starting on Saturday 5 December, in Bridgend parking will be free after 10am at the council-run Rhiw and Cheapside multi-storeys, the car park behind Wilkinsons, at Tremains Road and at Tondu Road. In Porthcawl, it will be free after 10am at John Street and at Hillsboro Place.

Provided by Bridgend County Borough Council as part of its ongoing support for traders during the coronavirus pandemic, the free parking will be available until Thursday 31 December and joins the free facilities that are already available at Maesteg and Pencoed.

The impact of the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic continues to make itself felt, and the council wants to do all that it can to support local businesses and shoppers.

Whether it is by providing a range of free and concessionary rental rates for market stall traders, processing millions of pounds of financial support, offering free start-back training and equipment or through free car parking offers such as this, we are committed towards helping businesses make it through these difficult times.

Bridgend, Porthcawl, Maesteg and Pencoed all offer a diverse range of shops, attractions and places to eat or drink, so I hope that visitors and shoppers will buy locally, and come and see for themselves what the county borough can offer.

Councillor Richard Young, Cabinet Member for Communities
