If the QR code is not recognised, or you do not have a QR code to hand, please do not take a token but instead press the intercom assistance button on the entry column, a member of staff will then assist you.

Automatic Number Plate Recognition is used for pre-book customers only.

If you have pre-booked your parking, drive up to the barrier, once the ANPR cameras have recognised your vehicle registration the barrier will raise so you may enter the car park. Please allow 30 seconds for the ANPR to recognise your vehicle.

If for any reason the ANPR cameras do not recognise your vehicle registration plate (if the vehicle plate is obscured by dirt/snow etc.), the barrier will not lift. In this instance, please scan the QR code on your booking confirmation (it must be a printed copy) which looks like this:
