Reduced parking prices at North Finchley Town Centre introduced in November are to become permanent.
Barnet Council has written a letter to traders confirming that the temporary changes introduced in November 2012 will be made permanent from Monday 9 December 2013.
The changes, which have been made as part of the Town Centre Review, include an option to park for free for a maximum of 15 minutes in selected bays, an introduction of a 15 minute on-street parking tariff and a 35 per cent reduction in all other parking tariffs.
Councillor Dean Cohen, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “I am delighted to see that these measures have been made permanent. I am certain that they will continue to have a positive effect on our high-streets, especially through this holiday period.”
