Digital permits are registered on parking systems, which means wardens on patrol (or our camera cars) can instantly check on their handheld devices if a vehicle holds a valid permit or not. It means you will not have to display a physical permit on your windscreen.
Digital permits will create a simpler, more flexible and more responsive service for local residents.
There are many benefits from introducing a digital parking permit scheme. These include:

From an enforcement perspective, digital permits can reduce complaints to the parking enforcement team, as the scheme is not compromised by physical discs falling from windscreens, or visitor scratch cards being used incorrectly.
