Joining the National Parking Platform – KEY/9OCT2023/01

The Cabinet Member approved the decision to: 




1.     Join the National Parking Platform (NPP) to give parking customers the choice of which cashless parking provider they use to pay for their parking by either phone or app.

2.     Enter a contract with the parking providers (currently Pay by Phone, RingGo (EasyPark), APCOA Connect and JustPark) for an initial period of 2 years with an option to automatically extend, after the initial period, for successive periods of 12 months for the purpose of receiving payments from the parking providers, made by Peterborough City Council’s parking customers.  The annual value of the overall contracts is anticipated to be £24,000 per year, being 2.5% of the transaction.  However, this cannot be broken down per provider because it is the motorist who chooses which provider to use to pay for their parking in a Council car park.

3.     Enter into contracts with further parking providers as and when they join the NPP for a term to coincide with the contract period stated at paragraph 2 above.
