A convenient new way to pay for parking

We’ve erected signage in the region’s paid carparks.

The PayStay signs explain how to use the new system of paid parking, which will be officially operational from Tuesday, April 18.

Local Laws officers will be onsite in paid off-street car parks next Tuesday to explain the system.
