Ticketless parking comes to Camberley – Do you know your Reg?

SHBCCar park users are being asked “Do you know your Reg?” as ticketless parking comes to Camberley.

Starting next month, payment machines at Main Square and Knoll Road multi-storey car parks are being replaced with a ticketless system.

The new car number plate recognition system will operate in both car parks, with access barriers capturing number plate information as vehicles enter.

When users are ready to leave they will need to enter their car registration number at one of the pay stations located in the car park. Payments can be made by card or cash.

Ticketless parking also means that because users do not get a ticket, they can no longer lose or need to pay for a lost ticket.

Portfolio holder for business Cllr Craig Fennell said: “We’re pleased to introduce this new state-of-the-art system which demonstrates the council’s desire to enhance Camberley Town Centre for its residents and visitors. The new technology will improve customer experience, reduce time taken for vehicles to enter the car parks and mean fewer queues.

“Visitors will need to remember their vehicle registration number and proceed to any of the machines before exiting.”

This latest upgrade partly represents an investment of more than £500,000 by Surrey Heath Borough Council in its town centre car parks, which so far has seen the Main Square stairwells refurbished as well as a resurfaced level 4 with extra wide parking bays.

Also starting in June will be the complete refurbishment of all the lifts in Main Square. This is a significant task, taking three months for each lift to be refurbished in turn.

Cllr Fennell added: “Throughout the work we will ensure our car parks remain fully operational and disruption is kept to a minimum.”
