Pay and Display car parking returns

Pay and Display in car parks in the Scottish Borders will return on Monday 10 August.

Pay and Display was suspended at the start of the COVID-19 lockdown but as part of our phased recovery approach, it will return in August.

While charging will return on 10 August, for the first week until 17 August parking attendants visiting car parks across the Borders will aim to offer advice to drivers regarding non-payment rather than immediately issuing a penalty.

"This phased approach will give the public some time to adjust to the return of Pay and Display, and allow permit holders to receive their renewals.”

In order to minimise use of cash payments at Pay and Display machines, parking attendants will also encourage the public to use the RingGo app which allows drivers to use their mobile phone to pay via debit or credit card."
