Car parks - how to pay

Our car parks are either:

  • pay and display, or
  • pay on return, using automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) and barriers

Parking permits are available in most of our car parks.

For charges see the relevant car park page or the signs in car parks.

Pay on return (using ANPR)

Camera controlled car parks utilise automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras to record vehicles entering and exiting the car park. Pay with coins or credit/debit card at the machines in the car park before you return to your vehicle.

Pay and display

The majority of our pay machines only accept credit / debit cards.

Machines in the following car parks only accept payment by cash:

  • Desborough Street
  • George Street
  • Kingsmead

Cash payments can be made using 10p, 20p, 50p, £1 and £2 coins.

Pay for the amount of time you need to park, take your ticket and clearly display it in your vehicle. If you don't buy a ticket or you don't clearly display a valid ticket, we will issue a parking ticket (Penalty Charge Notice).

Pay by phone

You can also pay by RingGo in most of our car parks:

  • visit the RingGo website
  • use the free RingGo smartphone apps
  • phone 01753 202 000

Additional charges may apply. Payment must be made on arrival in car park.

Broken machines

If there are no working machines in a pay and display car park, please make payment via RingGo.

We would appreciate you letting us know about non working machines so we can investigate and fix the problem as soon as possible.
