Carmarthenshire County Council is delighted to offer Town Forums and Chambers of Trade the chance to apply for the free parking days.

As part of a larger planned campaign or event, the local authority will waive fees in its car parks on five separate occasions throughout the year in Ammanford, Carmarthen, Llandeilo, Llandovery, Llanelli, Newcastle Emlyn, and St Clears.

The council would like to receive proposals through Town Forums, Chambers of Commerce and/or Trade, or online.

Traders can sign up now to the Events Network Circle in order to access support, advice and contacts as well as how to apply to the county council’s new Event Support Fund.

The council’s executive board member for environment Cllr Hazel Evans said: “This initiative is designed to encourage people to visit our towns for events and discover what they have to offer.

“I would urge Town Forums and Chambers of Trade to come forward with proposals to take advantage of this opportunity.”
