PayByPhone for parking

PayByPhone is a quick, secure and convenient way to pay for parking. Instead of having to find the right change for a Pay and Display machine, you can simply use a smart phone to pay and have it charged to your credit or debit card.

For details of which car parks are included please see car park locations.

Register to use PaybyPhone

Before you can use the PaybyPhone service you must register your vehicle and payment card details. You only need to do this once and then you can use the service whenever you need to pay for parking.

PayByPhone online registration

For full details please see the PayByPhone website: Five Ways to Use the Service

Using the reminder text service

You can choose to receive reminder texts so that you always know when your parking session is about to end. You no longer need to hurry back to your vehicle as you can use your mobile phone to top up from wherever you are.


The mobile phone payment service costs an extra 10p where the charge is less than £2, and 20p when it is £2 or more. This is over and above the standard ticket price.

The text reminder option is a further 10p.

A receipt of payment confirmation is sent to you when you have paid. VAT receipts are available free online or by e-mail.


Receipt of payment is confirmed at the time of payment. VAT receipts are available free online or by e-mail.
