To help residents with their Christmas shopping, and to see in the New Year, Enfield Council is introducing free parking for the next three Saturdays in the Council’s town centre car park.

The Council is working with Enfield Business & Retailers Association and local business associations to promote Enfield’s town centres in the ‘Love Your High Street’ Enfield Shopping Campaign. It has also provided direct grants and support to retailers affected by the disturbances, and will reclaim these monies through the Government’s High Street Fund.

Cllr Chris Bond, Cabinet Member for Environment made the announcement at the Cabinet Meeting on 14th December 2011.

Cllr Bond explained “We have an opportunity to help footfall in the town centres, and restore confidence by drawing on funds from the Government, and have made sure that our local businesses, communities and residents benefit from this initiative.”

Cllr Del Goddard, Cabinet Member for Business and Regeneration said “We have been working hard with the Enfield Business & Retailers Association since the disturbances in August to launch the ‘Love your High Street’ campaign (www.weloveenfield.com).

““We have also undertaken joint working with them to ensure that that businesses benefit from grants, business advice and support.

“Town centres ranging from Angel Fore Street to Southgate are the heart of our communities, and we need to support them and protect jobs and business wherever we can. This free parking will allow more shoppers and New Year visitors to access our town centres which will help local shops.”
