Free tourist coach parking 'will continue' after trial

Free tourist bus coach parking is being offered at two locations in the Mendips - following an 18-month trial.

It's been tested at Northload Street West coach park in Glastonbury and Princess Road in Wells. 

The decision follows an increase in tourists - partly being put down to the free parking.

The council’s Portfolio Holder for Neighbourhood Services Nick Cottle said: "Following informal customer and business feedback, the free parking facility for coaches has seen an increase in tourists and has been positively received by both bus and coach companies as well as the visitors.

"We hope that by fully adopting the free coach parking in the two locations, we will see continual growth in the number of visitors and thus increasing tourism, footfall in the High Streets and use and support of our local businesses."
