Please note: Free parking was introduced in council owned car parks in Loughborough from Friday March 27. Council owned car parks across the borough will also remain free of charge.

The Council will keep the car parks open to help support communities, critical key workers and essential businesses allowed to operate in line with recent government guidance.

This decision will be reviewed on a regular basis and amended to reflect any changes in the guidance.
