The car parks and dates of the free parking are as follows:

Councillor Paul Wotherspoon, Arun District Council’s Cabinet Member for Neighbourhood Services, said: “Our town centre shops and businesses have a great deal to offer and we’re delighted to be supporting our business community in Bognor Regis and Littlehampton again this year by offering free parking, including on Small Business Saturday.
“We hope that more people than ever make the most of the free parking scheme and support our local shops during what is such an important time of year for them.”
The free parking does not include any privately run car parks. Disabled bays will also remain strictly for the use of blue badge holders only.
