Visitors are being encouraged to stay in Lynn for longer on Sundays this September as a new car parking promotion offers people the chance to park all day for the price of just one hour.
Super Sundays is the latest in a series of Just the Ticket promotions designed by West Norfolk Council to support the town’s economy by encouraging footfall at normally quiet times.
It will mean motorists will pay just £1.40, the equivalent of one hour’s parking in one of the council’s short-term car parks, and be able to park until midnight.
Elizabeth Nockolds, Cabinet member responsible for car parks, said: “The first initiative was well received and it, along with the warm weather, seems to have helped draw people to the town.
“We hope the Sunday offer will encourage people to stay in King’s Lynn longer, giving them time to explore the shops and enjoy the restaurant and leisure activities that the town boasts.”
The Super Sundays offer runs from September 1 to September 29 (inclusive) and applies to all Lynn pay-and-display car parks owned and operated by the borough council.
All of the participating car parks will display a Just the Ticket notice.
Motorists will need to display a valid ticket by entering their registration number into the parking machines.
Overnight parking (from midnight to 8 am the following morning) is subject to the standard £1 fee.

The council has set aside £100,000 this year to offer parking promotions to help stimulate footfall.
The first initiative Free After Three in Wednesdays, which ends next week, enabled visitors to park free between 3pm and midnight during the summer holidays.
