Parking is free in Ilkeston this festive period for Christmas shoppers.
From Friday, December 14, until January 1, parking fees in all the council-owned car parks in the borough will be suspended between 9.30am and 6pm.
The free parking is aimed at giving a boost to traders and shoppers during the holiday season.
Any vehicles parked before 9.30am are subject to a pay and display charge. Long Eaton train station car park is not included in the scheme.
