The Council is proposing to end coin payments in our pay and display parking, all parking in the city will be via cashless payments only. This will mean the amendment of the City of Newcastle upon Tyne (Off Street Parking Places) Order to remove coin payments as a valid payment method. Going cashless will includes rolling out 'PayByPhone' to locations that don’t have this option. Ticket machines will be card-enabled and available at every location.
This would be applicable at every parking pay and display across the whole city. The Elders Council has made representations
to the City Council regarding this matter.
Any comments to make about this please respond by 29 November 2022 using the contact details below.
The City Council have gathered much information together in one place on their website. There is a whole lot of stuff there from energy advice to free childcare.
