Access, including parking

The vast majority of businesses welcome car parking promotions to make the Town Centre more accessible and affordable to visitors and shoppers.  Clear signage and up to date maps to show visitors what is on offer in Huntingdon benefits all businesses and destinations; large, small, commercial and retail.  In our pedestrianised centre we already have a thriving Shopmobility. Let’s encourage more visitors to come to Huntingdon and enjoy our town.

Parking Promotions
BID Huntingdon has successfully negotiated a series of free/discounted car parking promotions.  These will be focused, specific and measurable and aim to achieve increased car parking usage and footfall for specific periods of time.

Signage and Maps
Once visitors are here it is important they can find their way around, locate your business and discover new destinations that they have not found before.  The existing wall maps and matching free leaflets, showing the shops and services, will be refreshed and updated promoting the 300+ locations in the town.

Shopmobility is a well-established service in Huntingdon, operating from Monday to Saturday. With thousands of customers making use of the facilities, this friendly and professional operation is a vital lifeline for people who struggle with limited mobility.  BID Huntingdon is working with Shopmobility to promote the service and support the continuation of the scheme that ensures more customers can visit our town.
