SHOPPERS can take advantage of free parking as a council looks to boost late-night shopping.
Fareham Borough Council has made parking free after 5pm on Thursdays in the multi-storey car parks at Osborne Road and the shopping centre and the long-stay car park in Market Quay.
The parking will remain free every Thursday evening all year round.
Cllr Keith Evans said: ‘Every Thursday the shopping centre is open until 7pm for late night shopping. We hope free parking encourages people to take advantage of this and other attractions in the town.’
