Parking charges and ways to pay for parking
Most of our car parks where charges apply are pay and display but we encourage you to use the MiPermit app.
If you want to use a ticket machine, find a parking space, pay the relevant fee and display the ticket clearly within your vehicle.
Using the MiPermit app
The easist way to pay for parking in many of our car parks is by using the MiPermit app.
Once downloaded and registered with a car, then just find a parking space and use the app to buy your digital 'ticket'.
To buy a parking session, you will need to make sure you pay for parking in the right car park. The app should find your location if location services is enabled on your phone. Or you can 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. They'll check the system to see if you've paid.
You receive a receipt within the app for each purchase, and you can always download invoices if you need to claim the parking back such as for work.
The app shows you how much time you have left on your parking and can give you a reminder in a text message.
You can also use the MiPermit app to add more time to your parking at any point, if you wish to do more shopping or chat longer over a coffee.
The app will even help you find a parking space.

Other ways to pay for parking in our car parks
Our multi-storey car park in Workington
This is pay on exit. Just take a ticket at the barrier, and pay at the machines before you return to your car.
Paying by cash and card
Our machines only take card payments due to the risk from coronavirus.
If you use our car parks regularly you can buy a parking permit to save you money.
Parking for Blue Badge holders
Blue badge holders can park for 3 hours free on our long stay car parks providing you display a valid blue badge and their time of arrival clearly in their front windscreen.
If you want to park for longer you can either return to the car park and purchase a ticket to cover their stay or use Mi Permit (download the app from your app store) to purchase a pay and stay to start once your three hours has ended.
If you are using short stay car parks they may only park for the maximum time allowed, again they must display a valid badge and their time of arrival. Check the maximum time at the specific car park as this may be different for each one. There are boards in each car park outlining this clearly.
