With immediate effect, people can only pay for parking with cash at the payment machines and can no longer use pay by phone, text, app or website.

  Disabled (blue) badge holders will continue to receive free parking however they no longer need to register the vehicle they have travelled in and should instead display their blue badge in their car windscreen.
