Mid Sussex District Council is providing all-day town centre parking for £1.20 on the weekends leading up to Christmas.

The Council is supporting shoppers and traders with discounted parking on Saturdays in the towns of Burgess Hill, East Grinstead and Haywards Heath. The £1.20 parking offer will only be available in long stay car parks owned by Mid Sussex District Council.

Parking in Mid Sussex is completely free on Sundays, so that’s a whole weekend of shopping for the same price as a loaf of bread. The parking discounts will be available from Saturday 7 December at the following locations:

  • Station Road car park – Burgess Hill
  • The Vicarage car park – East Grinstead
