Pay for parking by phone

11:58am - 21 May 2018

On street parking charges can now be paid for by phone thanks to the introduction of a virtual permit system in Weston.

Following the successful introduction of the MiPermit pay by phone service in most council car parks, this has been rolled out to on street pay and display areas in Weston.

People can either pay the parking charge by texting from a mobile phone or by downloading the free MiPermit app. You can also access MiPermit online at

Users have the convenience of not having to have cash, or the right money and no risk of the ticket falling off of the windscreen. They can also opt for a reminder text giving them a 20-minute notification that their virtual ticket is going to expire.

Once purchased, a virtual ticket will appear on the civil enforcement officer’s handset so they will know who has purchased a virtual ticket.

The two-hour maximum stay per street and no return for two hours, remains in force during the restricted hours in the on street pay and display areas. Notices and signs should still be observed. In off street car parks, the virtual ticket can be extended without having to return to the vehicle or car park.
