Pay On Exit Parking Coming To Dorchester


7:03am 25th September 2014
(Updated 9:48am 25th September 2014)

Parking fines for being late back to your car will soon be a thing of the past in Dorchester.

In four weeks time, every car park in the County Town will be pay on exit.

Letters will be sent out to drivers with permits in the next few weeks to explain how they'll be able to use the new system.

The announcement was made last night by West Dorset District Council's Parking Manager Chris Graves at a Dorchester BID AGM.

The original plan was to pilot the system in one car park in Dorchester first, but the decision has been taken to introduce it straight away into every car park in the town.
