Pay By Phone service to get underway

Have your say

A NEW cashless parking payment system gets underway in Kirklees next month.

The new service, which launches on April 1, will give customers the opportunity to pay parking charges for council-run on and off-street parking throughout the district via their mobile phones in over 5,000 car parking spaces located throughout Dewsbury, Holmfirth and Huddersfield. The existing pay-and-display arrangements can still be used.

Customers wanting to use the system can register when they first use the service at a car park or they can pre-register at

Payment by phone will mean that customers no longer have to carry change when paying for parking and customers will be able extend their parking time without returning to their car.
