Brigg MP Andrew Percy has welcomed a move by Conservative-run North Lincolnshire Council to introduce free all day parking in Brigg on Sundays.

Mr Percy said: “We are committed to supporting our local communities and received a really positive response when the council provided two hour free parking during the week and all day Saturday free parking last year.

“This extension started at the beginning of November and already seems to be proving 
popular.

“It’s great to see people enjoying and supporting the fantastic range of shops in our area, especially as we enter the Christmas period.”

North Lincolnshire Council leader Baroness Liz Redfern said very few councils provided free parking.

She said: “This shows our commitment to improving the economy of North Lincolnshire and making our town centres thriving places that people want to visit.”
