Shropshire has introduced a new parking law that allows people an extra fifteen minutes parking on top of their stated ticket time. When your ticket is due to expire you will automatically be grated the extra time before you risk getting a parking fine.
You will also be grated the fifteen minutes free parking when you first visit the high street car parks or online parking allowing you to run a quick errand. This initiative has come about following the concern of lack of footfall in to the towns and local councils are hoping that this will encourage more people in to the high streets.
Although this is not the same for all areas many have now added a ten minute grace period and some are looking to try and get that extended to thirty minutes. This has been welcomed by local shop owners who have been struggling with sales in the recent years due to lack of visitors to the town.
