South End and Selsdon Road parking trial

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Parking in South End and Selsdon Road is going digital from Monday (19 June) in a new trial, which is set to make it easier for more people to visit the area and support local businesses.

The move comes as part of Mayor Jason Perry’s plans to support Croydon’s district centres and high streets, and to modernise services. Shoppers will continue to be able to get a 30-minute free parking session and be able to use the bays for up to 2 hours, to encourage regular turnover creating more spaces close to shops.

The trial has been suggested as a way to ensure this service is being used as intended – to support our businesses by encouraging people to pop to local shops.

From Monday, ‘pay and display’ machines will be switched off, so they will not be dispensing tickets, as the council wants to make sure local businesses are truly benefitting from the intent of the offer, to encourage more local shopping.

Instead of getting a printed ticket, motorists will need to use the RingGo parking app to obtain a free session. One free 30-minute parking session will be available per vehicle within any 24-hour period.

RingGo is available on Apple and Android, and links to download can be found on the council website. Those who cannot access the app will be able to call RingGo on 0203 046 0010 to arrange a session.

If you have any comments, suggestions or ideas on this change to parking in South End and Selsdon Road, please tell us in our survey below. The survey will close at 23:59 hours on Sunday 16 July 2023.

If you have any questions, or require further information, please contact parking@croydon.gov.uk or by phone on 020 8726 6000.
