Information on the changes to the methods of paying for on-street and car park parking from Harrow Council:
The council is encouraging people to use cashless transactions to pay for its services.
Car parking is one of the areas affected, with suspension of traditional pay and display from late January. One-hour-free parking will be introduced across all council car parking spaces at the same time.
The easiest way to register your parking session and get your free hour will be with the PayByPhone app – available from all app stores.
PayByPhone also offers text, call and online services. You can set up an account to use these at paybyphone.co.uk or by calling 0208 039 1101.
When parking in the majority of our spaces the option to pay with cash will still be available.
This can be done via the network of PayPoint convenience stores. Details of the nearest one can be found on signage in car parks and near our on-street bays.
PayPoints offer ticketless parking, with no need to return to the car. You will need to quote your vehicle registration and the PayByPhone location number shown on nearby signage.
Where we’re not yet able to provide this facility within a five-minute walk, a pay and display machine accepting contactless card payments will be available instead.
