Parking charges and ways to pay for parking
Most of our car parks where charges apply are pay and display but we are moving towards a cashless option called MiPermit.
If you want to use a ticket machine, find a parking space, pay the relevant fee and display the ticket clearly within your vehicle.
Service changes due to the coronavirus outbreak
To help protect our staff from infection from the coronavirus on coins and money, we have taken the decision to only accept card payments on our car parking machines. Customers are also encouraged to use the MiPermit app.
Using the MiPermit app
If you want to use the cashless MiPermit system, find a parking space and use the MiPermit app - downloadable from the Google Play and Apple stores - to buy your digital 'ticket'. To buy a parking session, you will need to enter a specific code for that car park. These codes can be found below and on signage in the car parks.
Please note, you will not actually receive a paper ticket to display in your vehicle. Instead, the details will be registered on the MiPermit system which is used by our enforcement team.
Cashless parking (MiPermit)
You can now pay for parking in many of our car parks using the MiPermit app.
Follow the instructions on the payment machines for the details or go to the MiPermit website
You will not be issued with paper tickets for your stay using the MiPermit app. The payment will be automatically updated in our car parking systems and if an enforcement officer does check your vehicle, the system will be updated with your vehicle details and the payment.
You can use the MiPermit app to add more time to your parking at any point.
