16-year-old Being Treated For Head Injuries
Free Parking To Boost Sales
A three week consultation's started in the Vale of White Horse to see if people back two hours of free parking for the next year.
The district council hope the plan will boost trade, especially over the Christmas period.
Other changes included in the proposal for council-owned car parks for 2011/2012 are the need to display a ticket for free parking and an increase in permit prices.
Fees after the two hour free period would also rise by 30p.
Councillor Matthew Barber, leader of the council said if people supported the plan - it could come into force at the beginning of December.
"The big change being proposed is the two hours of free parking - this has the potential to benefit both residents and businesses in the area's towns.
"For many people two hours is enough to go shopping or attend appointments. Very few places in the UK are this generous, but we need to know what people think."
