With the festive season on the way, there's good news for shoppers looking to pick up a bargain in Ayr this Christmas.

There will be free parking in Ayr throughout December, thanks to South Ayrshire Council and the Ayrshire Roads Alliance.

The early Christmas present means free parking in all on-street pay and display parking bays and in the following car parks - Barns Crescent; Charlotte Street; Kyle Street. Maximum stay limits will still apply.

Councillor Ian Cochrane, Environment Portfolio Holder for South Ayrshire Council said: "Supporting local businesses is a big priority, and the free parking will be a welcome boost for retailers who have struggled of late.

"We want to attract people back into the town centre, but I would still encourage the use of sustainable modes of transport wherever possible.

"I would also ask that drivers comply with any length of stay restrictions, as it's important that we continue to encourage parking space turnover.  

"Finally, please remember to follow the latest COVID-19 advice, while you are out and about over the festive season."
