RingGo Cashless Parking

RingGo is available in all our car parks across the Rother district. RingGo lets you pay for your parking without cash, you just need a debit or credit card and a phone. You can register with RingGo either by using the RingGo smartphone app (downloadable free of charge) or online at RingGo’s website. Alternatively you can register at the same time you want to park by calling 0203 046 0010 and paying for parking. Please note you cannot book a space in advance of arrival at any of our car parks.

You may pay a 20p convenience charge on top of the normal parking charges – please see local signage within the car park.

If you call or text RingGo you are charged the standard rate, often included within your mobile phone package. If you use ‘text to park’ you pay for the text message and 10p for the summary text message which you automatically receive confirming your parking session details.

Optional confirmation messages and reminder texts, like when your session is about to run out, cost 10p per message.

Regular checks are carried out by the Contract Compliance Officers to ensure the Pay and Display rules are observed and Standard Charge Notices are issued to offenders.

Winter Maintenance – Snow and Ice

We operate 30 car parks distributed around the 200 square miles that the District covers and, during snowy and icy weather, our intention is to treat as many of these as we are physically able, where road conditions allow us to reach them.

Many media reports about road travel confirm that just spreading salt will not clear snow. It needs the input of energy from moving traffic to spread and make the melting process work.

This means that some areas may remain affected by ice and snow and, as in the case of the highway, the motorist and user must exercise caution and discretion at times when using our Car Parks.
