Barnet Council has introduced free parking at two locations in Chipping Barnet Town Centre as a boost for the Christmas shopping period.
This comes alongside a host of other temporary measures which are to be made permanent.
Parking will be free at Moxon Street Car Park for up to one hour and for up to two hours at Hadley Green.
Other changes include a reduction of 35% in tariffs, and a maximum stay of 4 hours in the Moxon Street car park.
Councillor Dean Cohen, Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “I am pleased to see that these measures have been made permanent in Chipping Barnet Town Centre. During the trial period, customers and traders made it clear that they wanted a period of free parking in the area – these measures showed that we’ve listened.”
