The Park n Pay App allows you to top up your parking with convenience from your phone - wherever you are.

Everyone โ€“ residents, business and visitors โ€“ receives 15 minutes free parking.

This is designed to allow you to grab your coffee, paper or duck into a business without worrying about paying to park.

For residents and business who are registered on the system, you donโ€™t need to worry about moving after the 15 minutes โ€“ you can stay as long as the time restrictions allow.

For visitors, after 15 minutes you will need to pay.ย
