Tendring District Council’s car park customers can now pay for parking without the need for change. Additionally anyone who finds that they need to extend their parking time can call and add time without having to return to the car.
Cashless parking requires a credit or debit card and a mobile phone. New customers text or call their registration number and location code to mipermit who call them back, register them as a user and take a payment. Returning customers just text their location code and parking duration required. They can do this at the car park or from home via the internet before they set off.
Virtual permits are now available for Category A. B and C season tickets. You may also purchase Naze/Haven, Frinton and Walton or resident beach hut permits. These are all available on-line and they will be valid instantly.
The system is simple to follow and personal help is available should you need it. Once parking time has been purchased you will receive a text which confirms the details of your transaction and the expiry time of your parking.
There is a 20p convenience charge in addition to standard car park charges for this service. Reminder texts can be arranged for 30 minutes prior to expiry.
