Free parking is to be introduced on Sundays at a town centre car park to boost local shops and encourage people to shop locally.
Shoppers will be able to park for free at the Lambeth Council operated car park in Leigham Court Road, Streatham, from Sunday March 4th.
The move will create an extra 33 free car parking spaces in the town on Sundays.
Cllr Lorna Campbell, Lambeth Council cabinet member for environment and sustainability, said:
“Streatham has some great shopping opportunities and we are determined to do what we can to support local shops. Free Sunday parking at Leigham Court Road car park is a practical step that should provide a welcome boost to businesses by making it easier for shoppers to find a parking space.”
The car park will be open on Sunday from 7am to 7pm.
