How is Dover so quick off the blocks when it comes to new one pound coins

Contributed by editor on Feb 28, 2017 - 10:00 AM

With news that the pound won’t be round for much longer, with the new 12-sided pound coin set to launch on 28 March, Dover District Council (DDC) is confirming that its parking machines are ready to accept the new coins.
 

 


DDC installed 68 new Pay & Display parking ticket machines across the district last year, and these are all set to take the new pound coins.

Parking machines will continue to take the old pound coins until 15 October, when they cease to be legal tender.

In addition, to help us continue to provide innovative and environmentally friendly facilities, 60 of the new parking machines are solar-powered, all of them take euros, and 11 of the machines in the busier car parks are able to accept chip & pin and contactless card payments.

The Council also continues to operate the Ringo system, which means you can pay for parking using your mobile phone.
