DOUGLAS Council will be giving Christmas shoppers an early present during the run-up to Christmas.
The usual concession on car parking charges will apply this year.
Its Public Works Committee has announced that there will be no charge to use any of the local authority car parks during the Christmas period on Thursday evenings, and all day on Saturday and Sundays during the Christmas shopping period.
The free parking on Thursday evenings, when there is late shopping, will start on November 24.
The concession will end on Christmas Eve.
