THE issue of free parking in Honiton in the run-up to Christmas is to be re-examined by East Devon District Council - after town councillors rejected an initial offer.
Free parking has been offered, but only after 4pm on late shopping nights.
Honiton and District Chamber of Commerce and Industry is not planning any official late shopping nights, as they have not proved a success in the past.
Addressing Honiton Town Council last week, Councillor Peter Halse, the district's portfolio holder for the economy, said: "If the offer doesn't suit Honiton, we will look at it again.
You may also want to watch:
"We can't grant one township something we don't offer others."
Deputy mayor Councillor Peter Fleming complained that one district council-run car park in Exmouth appears to be free for up to six months of the year.
