As you may have seen, the new car parking machines are now in operation across the town’s eight district council-owned and operated car parks. They now provide a variety of payment options as well as a ‘pay on exit’ option. For free one-hour parking, press the ‘Free Parking’ button on the front of the machine, followed by the ‘green’ confirm button and a one-hour free display ticket will be issued.
If you will be parking for more than one hour, you can either purchase a ticket for the amount of time you plan to be (ie £1 for 2 hours) or you can choose the ‘pay on exit’ option. For this, follow the ‘Check-in, Check-out’ procedure instructions on the machine but don’t forget to ‘Check-out’ before driving out of the car park. The appropriate fee will be calculated based on your length of stay.
