A SHOPPING centre manager has praised a council for its support in changes to parking.

Mike Taylor, centre manager of Fareham Shopping Centre, has thanked Fareham Borough Council for adding an extra hour free parking on a Thursday evening.

The centre asked for the change so it would coincide with late-night shopping and Christmas shopping.

Mr Taylor said: ‘We hope that our customers will find this to be useful, particularly with the approval of the extra 60 minutes of free parking.

‘The council’s support in this matter is appreciated and I hope this is successful in improving the vibrancy of the town.’

The decision was made at an executive meeting last week and all three car parks will be free from 5pm on a Thursday.
