Pay to park using your mobile phone

Drivers parking in pay and display and shared use bays on-street throughout the borough now have a new way of paying for parking.

You can pay by using your mobile phone.

You don't have to know how long you will be staying and you only pay for the time your car is parked. The service may be used by anyone who needs to pay to park in a Controlled Parking Zone in Wandsworth.

The service is available car parks within Battersea Park and adjacent to the Wandle Leisure Centre in Mapleton Road. In the Battersea Park car parks, a stepped tariff operates and motorists will be charged the rate applicable to their length of stay. 

You do not need to live in the borough to use this service.

Getting started

Register your details with Parkmobile online or telephone 020 3003 2523.
    This can be done in advance or when parking on-street and only takes a few minutes. When you sign up you will be asked to provide your details of your vehicle(s) and your debit or credit card details. You pay a 20p convenience fee on top of each parking charge.  

    Paying on the street

    When you arrive at a parking space call the Parkmobile number on your phone: 020 3003 2523.

    Key in the three or five digit location code corresponding to the section of road or car park where you are parking. 

    The location code will be clearly displayed on the side of each pay and display machine. 

    When you return, telephone 020 3003 2523 to end your parking transaction. 

    The system will calculate your parking charge and add it your personal account. 

    Both calls will be less than 1 minute in duration and for users with inclusive minutes on their phone contract, the calls are included. 

    Smartphone users

    If you have an iPhone, Android, Windows or BlackBerry device, you can download the Parkmobile App from the Apple App Store, Android App Market, Windows Marketplace or BlackBerry App World.

    Saving you money

    Paying by mobile phone from your parking space means you only pay for the time you use. You can make the two very short calls from the safety of your car or use the free Parkmobile App.  You can even get a text message reminder when you are approaching the maximum stay for the bay.


    You pay 20p convenience charge on top of each parking fee. These charges appear on your monthly account which all registered users receive from Parkmobile. 

    Members have secure online access to their own personal pages - and can check their parking transactions, invoices, set up text reminders and update their personal details.

    The pay-by-phone parking fee is the same as paying with coins and if your vehicle has a valid annual resident parking permit, you will automatically receive the 20p discount in the hourly charge every time you park.


    Civil Enforcement Officers (CEOs) make sure a driver has paid for his or her space by an electronic check of the vehicles registration number. You can still pay by cash if you wish - the pay and display machines will continue to operate.
