Car parks - buying a ticket
Our car parks are either:
- Pay on foot or
- Pay and display
For charges see our car parks charges page or the signs and tariff information boards in car parks.
Pay on foot
Pay on foot is where you take a ticket at the entrance barrier on entering the car park and pay at the paystation before you return to your vehicle. Please remember to take your ticket with you when leaving the car park as you will need it to open the security doors.
These machines accept coins (10p, 20p, 50p and £1), notes (£5, £10 and £20) plus some credit/debit cards.
Once you have paid, the pay station will issue an exit ticket that is valid for ten minutes to give you time to get your vehicle and drive to the exit barrier. Inserting the exit ticket will raise the barrier and let you out. Payments cannot be made at the exit barrier.
We also have a pre-paid rechargeable card available for use in the pay on foot machines. For further details please contact our Parking Service team using the details on the right hand side.
Pay and display
Pay and display machines accept the following coins: 10p, 20p, 50p, £1 and £2. Many also have a credit/debit card facility. Simply pay for the amount of time you need to park, take your ticket and clearly display it in your vehicle. Failure to buy or appropriately display a valid ticket will result in a Penalty Charge Notice (parking ticket) being issued. More about Penalty Charge Notices.
Alternative ways to pay
You don't need to carry change and may not need to visit the pay and display machine.
RingGo is a quick, easy to use mobile phone service, which lets you pay for your parking with a credit or debit card, rather than using cash at a machine. When you park your car in an area featuring the RingGo service, you simply contact RingGo by iPhone or Android app, phone, SMS or on-line, and pay for your parking by phone.
- You no longer need to carry change
- You don't have to visit a parking machine and
- You don't need to walk back with a parking ticket - Civil Enforcement Officers check which vehicles are parked with RingGo via their mobile phones.
You can, if the car park regulations permit, extend your parking time without returning to the car park. Visit the RingGo website using the link below to register and find out more.
You can register online with RingGo (visit their website at the bottom of the page) by using the RingGo smartphone apps or by phoning 01753 202 000. You only need to register for your first use; subsequent uses are even easier.
There is no charge for registering with RingGo and no charge for downloading or using the RingGo iPhone and Android applications. When you park your vehicle with RingGo, you pay a 20p convenience charge on top of the normal parking tariff charges which apply. The optional parking session confirmation messages and reminder texts (alerting you when your session is about to run out) cost 10p per message
