CAR parks should be free after 3pm – that’s the message from Fareham’s Labour Party.

The party, which does not have an elected member on the council, has said it believes making car parks free after 3pm would boost the town centre and encourage more people to shop.

A Labour statement said: ‘In these straitened times we need to help people and businesses as much as we can.

‘That’s why one of Labour‘s policies for Fareham is to introduce, in the town centre, free parking after 3pm. We believe that bringing in “Free at Three” would encourage more people to shop in our town centre helping the local economy thrive.’
