Pay and display parking – 'shopper' bays

CPZ parking bayIn roads close to shops and businesses, some pay and display only 'shopper' parking bays may be provided.

An example of a pay and display only 'shopper' bay sign is shown on the right.

Maximum stay

These bays have a short maximum stay of 30 minutes or 1 hour, to ensure a regular turnover of vehicles in busy areas with a high demand for parking.

Operating times

Visitors should always check the bay signs carefully before leaving their vehicles as some pay and display facilities are only available at certain times (e.g. between 10am and 4pm) and outside these hours, other restrictions may be in force.


Instead of purchasing a pay and display ticket, 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).
