Two Hours FREE Parking

The free parking all day, every day in all Corsham's car parks and the lifting of parking restrictions put in place by Wiltshire Council has now ended. (NHS staff and key care workers can still park for free but need proof - either a copy of their badge (with personal info deleted) or a letter from their employer left on the dashboard.) The Town Council has now launched a TWO HOURS FREE parking scheme, which will run until March 2021, to help our local businesses. You do still need to get a ticket.
