Alex Chalk is calling on Cheltenham's Lib Dem Council to offer free parking to shoppers this Small Business Saturday (Saturday 6th December).
Mr Chalk said "We're fortunate in Cheltenham to have such a fantastic range of small businesses. But we need to support them whenever we can. That’s why I’m calling on the Lib Dem Council to follow Shire Hall’s lead by offering free parking in Council controlled car parks on this crucial trading Saturday. It would be a shot in the arm for local retailers, and improve our reputation as a key local shopping destination. Local Lib Dems have dismissed this as a ‘red herring’. That is complacent and out of touch. They need to think again."
