Parking charges

We've introduced simple charges for parking in our car parks.

Can I use contactless or chip and pin to make payments?

Contactless or chip and pin card payments have been introduced at all pay and display car parks, and is available on some on-street machines only.

Automatic Number Plate Recognition

At Newarke Street and Haymarket multi-storey car parks, Automatic Number Plate Registration (ANPR) systems have been installed. In addition, new payment kiosks allow for payment by cash, card and contactless.

We have also introduced AutoPay in these two car parks. This is an automated payment system, which records when a vehicle enters and exits a car park, billing the account holder's payment account without the need to manually make a cash or card payment at the pay kiosk. AutoPay uses ANPR technology, so once registered, you can use our multi-storey car parks as you please, knowing you will only be billed for the time you parked.


Register for AutoPay

Available at Newarke Street and Haymarket car parks

 

What is a Night Owl rate?

The Night Owl rate provides cheaper or free parking for vehicles arriving after 5pm, which is available at all car parks. Please always check car park tariff boards for charges payable.
