The Vila Real Council will exempt the payment of parking until the end of December and has launched the campaign Valorizar-nos to encourage consumption in local commerce.

The mayor of Vila Real, Rui Santos, has announced measures that aim to support the most affected economical sectors, among which he highlight the parking free in the municipality.

The mayor also said that, until July, the occupation fees for public roads by restaurants and coffee shops for the installation of terraces will cost zero, as will the advertising fee, and this support will be extended throughout the year 2021.

“Buying in the local commerce has never been so important than today. In the Christmas season, we can all do our part, using our trade, our neighbors, our friends, those who have been the backbone of our local economy”, said the municipality in the campaign presentation.
