Work begins to install a new payment system at Lichfield car park

Work has begun to install new payment machines in a car park in Lichfield.

Friary Car Park’s current pay and display system is being replaced with an ANPR pay on first exit.

This means that vehicles will have their license plates registered as they enter, then use new terminals to enter their license plate to pay their parking fees when they are ready to exit.

Lichfield District Council leader Cllr Doug Pullen said:

“We are delighted that work has started on the new Friary Car Park payment machines.

“The new pay-on-exit system will significantly improve the customer experience as it eliminates any worries of having to return within a certain time frame associated with payment and viewing. ANPR technology makes this possible.

“It is not introduced to enforce but to record the time a vehicle spends in the car park and set the correct rate.

“Installation work for the new machines should be completed by early December.”

Drivers will be able to pay with cash, credit and debit cards or use smart devices such as Apple Pay and Google Pay.

Residents and permit holders of the Franciscan View Retirement Complex will be on an approved list and will therefore be able to leave without payment.
