Staffordshire Moorlands District Council (SMDC) has introduced digital payments for all the car parks it manages across the district – including in Leek and Cheadle.

The council has launched the ‘PayByPhone’ scheme at all its car parks as an alternative method of payment to the cash pay and display machines.

Users need to download an app or register online to pay via their mobile phone, but if they do not have a smartphone, they can call 0330 400 7275 or text 65565 to make a payment.

Each car park has a unique location number displayed on the ticket machines which needs to be quoted when paying.

Councillor James Aberley, Cabinet member for Customer Services at SMDC, said: “We’re delighted to introduce PayByPhone for drivers using our car parks across the Moorlands.

People have long been telling us they wanted more payment options so it’s great to now have phone payments up and running. I sure people will find it quick and convenient – and it saves the search for the right coins.”

He added: “We’re supporting our high streets, businesses and visitor attractions to thrive and making paying for parking as easy as possible is just one of the ways we’re doing that.

Further improvements to the car parking experience, including introducing card payment options, will be coming in over the coming months too.”

Using the PayByPhone system removes the need to display a ticket in vehicles and drivers do not need to rush back if their parking time is running out, as they will get text message reminders and are able to extend their parking session from their phone.
