Shoppers in Wisbech will benefit from three hours free parking – rather than just two - at the Horsefair’s ‘brighter, smarter’ car park.

Work on the new and improved facilities – involving repainting all the lines and ground floor, as well as fitting new lights and 13 parent and child parking bays – hopes to ‘create a more attractive environment for shoppers’.

The Horsefair Shopping Centre posted on social media: “This Sunday our car park will be closed all day. This is for re-surfacing works to place at the entrance/exit area, sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause.”

The converted system means customers will no longer have to display a ticket. Instead, they will be free to park on both the ground and first levels of the car park.

After three hours, the rates have been reduced from current prices with an extra hour being 50p (currently £1) and all day parking for just £2, which is £1.50 cheaper than it is at the moment.

“Plus it’s going to be a much brighter, smarter looking car park.”

When the car park reopens, customers will no longer need to obtain a ticket, as the system will be automated, and a new pricing scheme will be introduced.

The car park is also free of time restrictions and charges on Sundays and every day after 6pm.

The new scheme will be in place from Monday February 8.
