Moorfield Car Park reopens to support Christmas shoppers and local traders

Cornwall Council reopened Moorfield car park in Truro for Saturday 2 December, in time to support Christmas shoppers and local traders last weekend.

Levels 7 and 8 of the multi-storey car park reopened last Wednesday providing additional spaces for those who headed to Truro’s Reindeer Parade and first late night shopping evening.

In the summer the Council closed off some parking spaces at Moorfield as a routine inspection revealed that essential maintenance work was required on the ramp between decks 8 and 9. The ramps to decks 7, 8 and 9 were closed off so repairs could be done, affecting around a third of the 681 spaces available.

Council’s Cabinet Member for Transport Geoff Brown said: “Like many towns in Cornwall, Truro has some great shops. With Moorfield Car Park reopening in time for the festive period people will be encouraged to shop locally and support local businesses.” 

Local Cornwall Councillor for Boscawen Bert Biscoe added: "Truro's traders, residents, clients, visitors, workers and shoppers are all very relieved to see the Moorfield re-opening at a very timely moment in the town's calendar. Moorfield is a fundamental tool in Truro's trading kit, and its closure has been a worry. Many thanks to the Council and to its contractor, CORMAC, for working so hard to complete works in time for the Christmas trade and events."

The reopening of Moorfield car park coincided with Truro’s free parking day. Shoppers that came to Truro on Saturday 2 December could use the two Park and Ride sites for free, as well as seven other Cornwall Council run car parks around the City.
