Horley town centre needs free parking

Free parking is a simple idea that could make a big difference to businesses in Horley. When people don’t have to worry about watching the clock to move their cars, they take longer and visit more shops than they otherwise would, helping local firms and revitalising the town centre. Saturday 6th December is Small Business Saturday, a national campaign to encourage people to support local businesses in the community, so it would be the perfect opportunity for the council to introduce free parking. This is not just about the run-up to Christmas: we need free parking in Horley full stop, as part of a long-term strategy to support firms in the town and boost our local economy.
