This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This is a nice gesture from Aberdeenshire Council both economically and socially. Hopefully this is a precedent for other councils to follow suit.

"By suspending all parking charges, the council aims to eliminate the need for the public to have to touch ticket machines, and get rid of any requirement for staff to attend them – reducing the risk of virus spread."

So this is encouraging people to 'potentially' spread a disease by interacting? Weird....
Does this not just encourage people to be out and about instead of at home? Doesn’t sound the smartest idea to me
When nobody is out they do it, what a useless gesture

So you're encouraged to stay indoors but councils are enticing you out, Crazy
"Common sense" is as rare as unicorns among Councils and government types
The picture is of Aberdeen, a different council.

The whole idea of encouraging car use is your isolated in a car where you aren’t in a bus. Though our bus service is shocking at best.

Funny how when the world turns upside down, they encourage you to abandon the thing they've been encouraging you to do in the first place and turn back to the thing that's supposedly killing the planet.

Some people need to work?
Spectacular
I have asked several councils to consider removing charges in their car parks and street parking. Unfortunately I cannot work from home and as part of the emergency services it is important for all of us to be able to get to our work and to do our job as safely as possible

In these hard times the councils must support people like you in every way. Can't afford to be missing any individual feom emergency services. There isn't even free parking for doctors and nurses at hospitals let alone patients. Charging anywhere between 4-8 pounds an hour in the name of maintenance costs.

See that's the thing, these green imbeciles trying to save the planet when all it takes it is a global virus to render us impotent anyway.

Go burn those fossil fuels in a real engine and enjoy the sound 'cuz a virus, a few nukes or Armageddon will end mankind before global warming can.

Speaking of idiots, way to conflate two completely separate issues...
Shouldn’t they be putting prices up? to encourage people to stay at home?

At least they wouldn't be all interacting with a parking machine... someone working at a hospital or someone going to the shops for vital supplies? I don't think making car parks free makes people go whoopy parkings free, lets all go out.
