Campaign for free parking in Woodbridge

Posted on 16 June 2020

Jill Barrett has started a campaign to persuade the local council to introduce free parking incentives for Woodbridge. Choose Woodbridge is giving it their full backing, BBC Radio Suffolk interviewed Jill on Saturday 13th June, and the campaign featured on the front page of the EADT on that day too!

If you would like to support this campaign, please contact Jill on shop@barretts.co.uk, or contact your local councillor here!

UPDATE: Overwhelmingly support for Free Parking in Woodbridge!

Woodbridge businesses have hit back at suggestions that there is “no evidence” parking charges put off shoppers with a survey that proves 81% of people are deterred by the tariff.
Business association Choose Woodbridge asked 325 people living and working in the area a series of questions about parking after businesses in the town launched a campaign to lobby East Suffolk Council for free car parking to help encourage visitors following the coronavirus pandemic.
The results show that 95% would like the council to introduce a period of free parking with 75% saying free parking would make it “highly likely” they would shop more regularly in Woodbridge town centre.
