Free parking in a Bedford multi-storey has been extended to encourage people to shop in town.

The scheme in which drivers could park for two hours for free in Queen Street car park during December has been extended to January 31.

Bedford Borough Council, which operates the car park, said the free parking “proved so popular, it is now set to continue for the next month”.

Free parking is also available elsewhere in Bedford:

· 2 hours free parking on Saturday in all Council-owned Town Centre car parks

· All of Sunday free parking in Council-owned Car Parks where open and on-street

· Free parking after 6pm on-street

· First 2 hours free parking in Queen Street car park for the whole of January. Address: Queen Street, Bedford MK40 2RF

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “With this little bit of extra help for motorists and shoppers hitting the sales, we want to help to kick-start the new year for Bedford Town Centre.”
