Free parking

It's FREE weekend parking this Christmas in all Council owned town centre car parks and on street bays!

'Tis the season to shop local in Rotherham Town Centre and support our independent businesses.

Remember, you can still park for free every Saturday all year round in the Forge Island, Drummond Street and Wellgate multi-storey car parks too.

Bridgegate works progressing


The Bridgegate Public Realm works are progressing well.

New paving has been laid on both sides of the street and preparations are underway to lay the central paving.

The feature lighting that hangs between the buildings is now in place and the lighting column installation is nearly complete.

Please note one-way system signage is in place around the site.

Support our small businesses this festive season


We were delighted to welcome back many of our lovely independent businesses this week.

They've been working really hard behind the scenes to get everything ready. 

After a challenging few months, it’s more important than ever to support our small businesses. And by shopping locally you can be safe in the knowledge that more of your money is going back into the local economy.
