DRIVERS who use council car parks in Sedgemoor can soon pay for their parking without franticly trying to find spare change.

Sedgemoor District Council began introducing a cashless parking system within its car parks from March 26 to provide people with a simpler way to pay.

The ‘phone and pay’ system, provided by Bemrose Mobile, will be rolled out in all of the eighteen district-council run pay and display car parks. The existing pay and display machines which will remain in place.

Motorists will benefit from features such as text confirmation, a reminder text when a parking session is due to expire and the option to top-up their session. Cllr John Swayne, portfolio holder for community, said: “We hope it will encourage motorists to stay for longer in the town centre.”

Car parks include: High Street (Lynton Road), Oxford Street, Pier Street (East, West and South), Berrow Road and the Yatch Club (summer only).

To use the new service, pre-register a vehicle online at www.phoneandpay.co.uk, download the app by searching ‘Phone and Pay parking’, call 01823-210302 or text the vehicle registration number to 07786 207708.
