Motorcycle parking

Motorcycles can park in a normal parking bay or where provided, in a dedicated motorcycle bay.

Pay By Phone payments

In October 2021 the District Council introduced a new text payment service partnering with Pay By Phone. This allows customers to pay for parking without having to queue at the payment machines in the car park, or return to your vehicle to attach the pay and display ticket to your vehicle.You can download the Pay By Phone App from the App Store or Google Play Store. If you do not have a smart phone, you can call 0330 400 7275 .Whether you use the App or use the telephone number, you will need to answer a few questions and register a credit/debit card and this information is stored for future use.Each car park has a six digit location number which can be found on the sticker which is on the side of each payment machines.

Pay & Display ticket

Motorcycles do require a pay and display ticket when parked in one of our car parks. If you haven't a secure way of displaying the Pay and Display ticket on your motorcycle then we offer the following advice:

  • Write your registration number on the ticket and take note the serial number (e.g. write it down or take a photo)
  • Take a photograph of the pay and display ticket on the motorcycle
  • Use or purchase a permit holder like that formerly used for a tax disc and the ticket can be placed inside
