Car parking and the new £1 coin – an update from Shropshire Council

People have been asking when the pay and display parking machines will accept the new £1 coin. 

In Shrewsbury, all of the on-street pay and display parking machines, plus the machines at the Bridge Street, Raven Meadows and St Austin’s Street car parks, now accept the new £1 coin and card payments.

Shropshire Council are waiting for their supplier to convert the remaining machines. Unfortunately, Shropshire is not the only council in the country waiting for this work to be done and, as such, is in a queue. However, the outstanding machine conversions are expected to be completed by the end of this month.

Shropshire Council appreciates that this is frustrating for many people. However, this work will soon be complete and they would like to thank people for their patience while it is carried out.

In the meantime, all of the pay and display parking machines will accept all other denominations of UK coins.

In Shrewsbury, visitors also have the option of paying by phone at Frankwell, Bridge Street and St Austin’s Street car parks.

The car park officers are aware that people may need to leave their vehicles for a short period while they find the correct coins.
