Comhairle nan Eilean Siar is proposing a festive boost for town centre businesses by providing free town centre parking over the Christmas and New Year period.
A report will be going to Councillors for their consideration.
A spokesperson, said: “It is important to provide support to local businesses where we can, particularly during these challenging financial times. Hopefully this will encourage more people to shop locally for Christmas."
Last year the Comhairle provided free town centre parking from 18 December to 5 January.
