Two bits of good news on Sandgate Parking - one for this weekend, and one for the New Year!
Sandgate's Castle Road Car Park will be FREE from 4pm on Friday until 8am on Monday 24th December. Users can park free after 4pm on Friday 21st, and all day Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd in the Castle Road Car Park (the one by the sea that is almost always empty - although I suspect less empty this weekend!).
For the New Year:
Shepway Council are in the process of agreeing a series of changes to parking charges in Folkestone and across the district.
One of those will be to make Council car parks stop charging at 6pm rather than 8pm across the district. Again, this will be good news for Sandgate's Castle Road Car Park, allowing users to park from 6pm until 8am the next day in Castle Road car park free of charge.
We await news of when this second change will be implemented, but it is expected to be early in the New Year.
