Parking charges in our council-owned car parks have been suspended until further notice as part of the response to the coronavirus outbreak. Therefore, we have suspended the paybyphone system during the time.
If you do not have any change when you arrive in one of our pay and display car parks, you can pay by using your mobile phone instead. The parking fee is charged to the credit or debit card you have registered.
This service is available in addition to paying with change at the machine, so you can use either.
How do I use Pay by Phone?
You will first need to register your vehicle and payment card details. You only need to do this once and then you can use the service whenever you need to pay for parking.
