Ways to pay for parking

How to pay by phone, online, by text or on the app.
Parking permit system

Our parking permit system is experiencing technical difficulties, our customer service team are getting in contact with those affected. During this period, our response time may be longer than usual whilst we work to get these issues resolved.

From 1 August 2020 you will need to pay for parking in council car parks and on-street pay and display bays via PayByPhone.

We're launching a cashless Pay and Display service with PayByPhone as part of our commitment to a carbon neutral borough by 2030 and to improve the customer experience.

During COVID-19 we have become more aware of the importance of cashless payments and PayByPhone is well placed to help us meet this demand.

PayByPhone is an easy, convenient way to pay for your parking via the app, online or by telephone.

It’s cashless, provides you with the ability to extend your parking session on the go, and the app provides you with the option to receive timely reminders and a live countdown timer so you don’t overstay your parking session.

You'll need your mobile number and email address to register for a PayByPhone account, and your vehicle registration and payment details to book your first parking session.
