Pay for parking
Pay for parking
Pay for parking in our pay and display car parks.
Pay and display payment machines
Our pay and display payment machines accept cash and credit or debit card payments. You must display your valid ticket during your stay.
If a pay and display machine is not working please use another pay and display machine in the car park if there are any. Alternatively, you can arrange a virtual parking session via MiPermit by text, telephone, phone app or online.
MiPermit digital payment
You can pay online via MiPermit cashless parking, telephone, SMS, or the MiPermit smartphone app. MiPermit digital payments are ticketless. You do not need to display anything when you park.
MiPermit digital parking stays can be pre-booked online up to 7 days in advance. Pre-booking does not guarantee a parking space.
All our parking fees (also known as tariffs) can be found on our car park tariff boards or online on our pay and display car parks page.
