Starting on Thursday 7 December, shoppers will be able to park their car free of charge after 3pm every Thursday. Free spaces will be available in Wakefield, Pontefract and Castleford at Council owned car parks and on-street parking areas.
Signs will be displayed on, or next to, parking payment machines to remind people of the dates, which are 7, 14 and 21 December.
