Car Park Building Delay Means Free Parking Spaces For Shaftesbury Fringe

Shaftesbury’s Coppice Street car park reopens today, after work to create the new paid-for parking area was delayed by paperwork and bereavement.

Cllr Alex Chase says Town Hall staff decided to make the unmarked and unregulated parking area available because high demand for spaces is anticipated with this weekend’s Fringe Festival.
