Council introduces new ticketless parking system at Chatham car park | Medway Council
Published: Wednesday, 24th March 2021

We are introducing a new ticketless parking system at The Brook multi-storey car park in Chatham from Monday, 29 March. 

The upgraded parking system will read visitors’ number plates as they enter the car park, using new automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras.

When motorists return to the car park they will use one of four new parking machines to enter their registration details and will be able to pay for their parking by cash, card or by using contactless.

New ANPR cameras will then automatically raise the barrier at the car park’s exit.

Residents can park without carrying a ticket around with them

Cllr Phil Filmer, Medway Council’s Portfolio Holder for Frontline Services, said: “I am pleased that we are introducing a new ticketless parking system in one of our car parks for the first time. The new ANPR system at The Brook multi-storey car park will allow residents to park without needing to carry a ticket around with them. Our new parking machines will also enable motorists to pay for parking by cash, card or by contactless payment.”

We are considering piloting ANPR parking in two of Medway’s council-run car parks later this year.
