Civic Centre car park (ANPR) customer information

The Civic Centre car park is operated by Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) technology with cash and card payment options available at the pay stations and an online cashless payment service available through APCOA Connect

When a motorist approaches the car park entrance, a camera scans their vehicle number plate, and the barrier is raised automatically to allow entry.  Paper tickets are no longer dispensed at the entrance.  When the motorist is ready to leave, payment for their parking session is calculated when they enter their vehicle registration at a pay station or through APCOA Connect At the exit, the ANPR system recognises that payment has been made and the barrier is raised automatically.
