PUBLISHED: 10:08 02 December 2013 | UPDATED: 10:08 02 December 2013

Residents out doing their shopping will be able to take advantage of free parking at five council-run car parks for four days in the lead up to Christmas.

Free parking will be available on December 13, 16, 20 and 23 at the following car parks:

• St John’s Road East, East Ham

• St John’s Road West, East Ham

• Madge Gill Way, East Ham

• Shaftesbury Road, Upton Park

• Queens Market, Upton Park.

Newham Council is reminding motorists that they must still park legally within bay markings. If they park in a disabled bay they must display a valid Blue Badge or they face a penalty charge notice being issued.

Councillor Ian Corbett, executive member for infrastructure and environment, said: “We want to support businesses by encouraging residents to shop locally in the lead up to Christmas.”
