Pay for parking by phone

Motorists can now pay for their parking by phone using a credit or debit card, please check the list below for eligible car parks.

Parking sessions can be extended by phone and motorists can opt to get text reminders before their parking expires.

If motorists have paid by phone, pay and display tickets won't need to be displayed in vehicles. The Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) will be able to check registration numbers on their handheld devices.

You can also call 03304 007 275 and follow the instructions. There will be a brief registration process, so a preferred credit or debit card and at least one vehicle registration will be needed. You can pay for the first parking session when you call. 

Alternatively, you can pay by text message. Simply text 'info' to 65565 and follow the instructions.

The next time you want to pay for your parking by phone

  1. Call 0330 4007 275 or text 'info' to 65565.
  2. Enter the car park location number (signed in the car park or listed below).
  3. Enter the duration you wish to park for.

When you phone to pay, it is important that you listen to the whole message and press 1 to confirm when prompted. 

If you end the call before this part of the message and do not press 1, your transaction will not be processed.  This means that your car registration number will not appear as having paid on the CEOs' handheld devices.
