Applying concessions at Kiosk:

  • Input your Vehicle Registration Number on the payment Kiosk
  • When it asks for payment, scan the barcode located on the rear of your badge. This should clear your charge
  • Drive to the exit barrier and it will raise automatically

Applying concessions at the Exit Barrier:

  • Drive to the exit barrier, the ANPR will recognise your Vehicle Registration Plate and display a charge
  • Remove the blue badge from any holders and scan the barcode located on the rear of your blue badge with the barcode facing upwards
  • Barrier will lift and you are free to leave

Pay before you leave (pay on foot) car parks

Barrier controlled visitor car parks operate using an Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) system. The number plate of a vehicle entering a barrier controlled car park is recorded. Before returning to the vehicle to leave the car park the number plate of the vehicle has to be entered on the touch screen in the Pay Station. Once the correct payment has been made the exit barrier will automatically lift as the vehicle approaches to leave the car park. Receipts for payment can be requested at the time of making payment.

These pay stations:
  • Accept notes and coins
  • Give change
  • Charge only for the time parked
  • Accepts Debit/Credit Cards
  • Accepts Apple Pay/Google Pay
