Chelmsford's Conservative City Councillors bring car parks managed by Chelmsford City Council into the modern era.
As people become increasingly used to being able to pay with cards and phone, it felt right to make cashless parking payments the norm for Chelmsford's motorists. From Bank Holiday Monday (May 28), Chelmsford's Conservative Councillors push forward with plans to introduce mobile payments. With the MiPermit app's implementation, there will be no need to carry coins or for people to worry about correctly displaying a ticket on windscreens or dashboards. What's more, users can also receive a text reminder 20 minutes before their stay expires.
"Cashless parking creates an easier, simpler experience for our customers, as well as reducing waste and promoting greener living, since it doesn't require a paper ticket to be printed. I'm looking forward to the introduction of MiPermit and encourage anyone who uses a city council car park regularly to register for the service now" said Councillor Malcolm Sismey, Cabinet Member for parking.
