Please read the terms and conditions on paying for on-street parking.


Please use Pay by Phone or Pay Point to pay for your parking. All parking sessions are virtual, therefore there is no need to display a ticket.

You can make an additional payment to extend your parking stay as long as your parking session doesn’t exceed the maximum time allowed for that location – please check the machines and signs for details on maximum stay periods.

If you park in a CPZ, you must purchase a session through Pay by Phone or PayPoint. You can book a parking session through Pay by Phone via phone, text or app. You can also still pay for your parking with cash using PayPoint. To find your closest two PayPoint locations, you can text CASH to 60075, and PayPoint will text back the details. Please note there is a 10p charge for this service.

Virtual Parking Sessions

Pay by Phone parking sessions are virtual. Once your sessions have been booked and paid for, you will have a live parking sessions for the duration booked.

Please note, you must park within the markings of the bay for your parking session to be valid.

Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs)

If you have parked incorrectly, or your parking session has expired, you may incur a PCN.

The maximum charge for a PCN is currently £130, although there is a discount offered if the PCN is paid within 14 days of being issued. All terms and conditions are available on the PCN itself, along with information on how to pay or challenge the PCN.

Your vehicle may be removed after the issue of a penalty charge notice. The vehicles owner is liable to pay all fees incurred before it will be released.

As mentioned, you must park within the marked bays to avoid getting a PCN. Please ensure you check that the bay you’re parking in accepts pay by phone parking sessions.

Charges do not apply on bank holidays – read more information about parking on bank holidays.

If a Pay by Phone location code is not working, please move your vehicle to another nearby road, as a faulty location code will not prevent us from issuing a PCN.

To report a fault, please call: 020 7926 9000, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.


For times of parking restrictions, please refer to the time plate that will be adjacent to the parking bay. This signage will let you know what Pay By Phone code you need to enter to park in that bay.

Each parking session booked is only valid on the date and time issued.
