People wanting to park in Spalding are being told that certain ticket machines will only accept card payments as of Monday (June 11).

Notices have gone up in South Holland District Council run car parks including Victoria Street and at the Castle Sports Complex.

Councillor Roger Gambba-Jones, Portfolio Holder for Place, said: “On June 11, we will be installing new payment machines into car parks in Spalding.

"These machines will be cashless and instead accept only card and payment via a phone.

"We anticipate that the machines will be operational by June 18. The option to use coin payment at two of our most popular car parks, Herring Lane and Victoria Street, will continue.

"A major reason for this approach is due to the most recent theft of a cash payment machine and those we have suffered in the past. There will also be savings in revenue and time expended by staff having to collect, bank and process money from cash machines.

"We believe that all car park users will benefit from having the choice and convenience of different payment options. To view the locations and costs of our car parks, please visit: www.sholland.gov.uk/carparks.”
