Technology Delivers More Parking Options

All West Lindsey District Council car parks have the technology to allow charges to be settled by a simple phone call.

Conservative Chairman of the Prosperous Communities Committee, Cllr. Malcolm Parish said: "Gainsborough is a progressive town so we are delighted to be able to offer this facility to local residents and visitors.

"The days of drivers searching for loose change and then having to battle through the wind and rain to find a pay and display machine will be a thing of the past."

An added benefit of the scheme is that customers who discover that their shopping or maybe an appointment is taking longer than they expected do not have to return to the car park to get another ticket – you can just call in and extend the time.

Conservative Leader of the Council, Cllr. Burt Keimach also welcomed the scheme. He said: "From our point of view it means that we don’t have to handle as much cash, our pay and display machines will last longer because they will get less use and we will use fewer tickets which is good for the environment."

Displays in the car parks give details of how users can join the mobile scheme or alternatively people can call 020 3003 2523, download the free App or visit

Registration is free and only takes a few minutes.  Parkmobile will require your payment card details and vehicle registration.

People who use the mobile facility will be charged 20 pence each time they park, in addition to the normal tariff.
