Pay and Display
We operate traditional pay and display on most of the car parks. Change is not given.
Pay by phone
Motorists using the Borough Council’s pay and display car parks can now opt for ‘cashless’ payments by phone.
The ‘Phone and Pay’ cashless parking scheme provides motorists with a quick, easy and safe way to pay for parking in advance, as well as benefiting from additional features such as text confirmation that parking has been booked and a reminder when the session is due to expire. Motorists also have the facility to extend parking sessions via phone, text or app, allowing shoppers and visitors to stay longer in the town centre without having to return to the car.
A 20p transaction fee is payable for initial parking, 10p for a text reminder, 10p for extending parking (where permitted) and 10p for a confirmation text
Cashless payments can be made on the Phone and Pay smartphone app or by calling 01782 367788. Users can also register for the system online.
Follow the instructions on the notices in the car park to give the correct site code to identify which car park you have parked on.
Car users can register for an account which can be either be pre-loaded or paid for as used when a credit/debit card is used.
The system provides for full VAT receipts.
