Pay and display parking - shared use bays

On-street pay and display parking is available in most controlled parking zones that operate all day (e.g. from 9.30am to 4.30pm).

Shared use bays are available to pay and display visitors and permit holders.

Maximum stay

The maximum stay allowed for pay and display generally varies between two and four hours depending on where the bays are.

In some areas there are longer maximum stay bays available. Generally, shared use parking bays near town centres allow a shorter maximum stay than those further out.

Signs displayed next to the bays (like the one on the right) clearly indicate the maximum parking time allowed.



Machines either accept payment by coin (20p, 50p, £1 and £2 coins) or payment by credit/debit card (Chip & Pin or contactless card), with a minimum charge of 20p, which will purchase a very short period of time. The machines do not give change.

Pay by phone

Alternatively, motorists may pay-by-phone avoiding the need to carry the right coins or to estimate how long they may need to park. Find out more about pay by phone (Parkmobile).
