Civic Centre car park - automatic number plate recognition (ANPR)

Civic Centre car park – the way you pay and park has changed

The Civic Centre car park is now operated by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology with more options to make payment than previously including a cashless service, APCOA Connect

Moving to a paperless system of operating the car park is part of an ongoing program of works to improve the facility. Tickets are no longer dispensed at the entrance barriers and payment is calculated when the vehicle number plate, which is scanned at the entrance, is entered by the motorist at a pay station. The changes have been designed to make parking more convenient for customers with reduced queuing times at the entrance and a quick and easy exit.
