Shoppers in Harrogate have been boosted by the news that two multi storey car parks will be open on Boxong Day.

Harrogate Borough Council have decided to open its Jubilee and Victoria car parks on Saturday, December 26, to support local businesses and shops.

Victoria Car Park, which is located on East Parade, and Jubilee Car Park, which is on Union Street, will be open from 9.45am until 5.30pm.

Coun Rebecca Burnett, cabinet member for Planning and Sustainable Transport said it was important local businesses in the town were supported to have a successful Boxing Day.

She said: "The week between Christmas and New Year is a busy period for retailers, with consumers looking for bargains in the sales. It is also a popular time for tourists visiting our beautiful town.

“We want to do all we can to make the experience as pleasant as possible, and as such we have decided to open our Victoria and Jubilee car parks on Boxing Day to ensure that parking is not an issue."
