Online only: Chip and PIN parking comes to Camden

Drivers in Camden will no longer have to rely on having change for the parking meter, as new solar powered Chip and PIN machines are being trialled in the area next week.

Camden Council is taking part in a trial of next generation pay and display machines, which aim to make it much quicker and easier for people to park safely and legally.

Six machines will be tried out at various locations across the borough: Earlham Street, Alfred Place, Tottenham Court Road, Hawley Crescent and two in Hampstead High Street.

The pilot is part of an initiative by Partnerships in Parking, a group of six inner London local authorities that are pooling their resources to try out the new machines.

The terminals are the first in the UK to use this technology to enable the new method of payment. Once the six-month trial is finished, Camden Council will look at the results before making a decision on using the meters across the borough.
