Canterbury deploys ANPR-based parking system

Canterbury City Council has taken delivery of a new system in its Castle Street off-street multi-storey car park to replace ageing Pay-on-Foot technology. The council is hoping that it will bring a number of benefits for visitors to the city center, including the ability to pre-book a parking space. Canterbury has chosen to deploy Parkeon’s ParkREG with barriers system, which is the first time the system has been installed in the UK. ParkREG with barriers is an innovative parking payment and centralised management system, which integrates Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) cameras and barriers on entry/exit lanes with the company’s Astreo terminals. The terminals can accept all payment methods, including coins, notes and cards, and are able to transfer data to parking management systems via either Ethernet, ADSL, WiFi or GPRS/3G. In Canterbury, the payment statistics and financial auditing of the system is incorporated into the Council’s existing Parkfolio, back-office system, allowing it to have one fully-integrated centralized system.

Canterbury uses numerous technologies to control its parking operations in the city and in its Park-and-Ride car parks, but the Council parking management team, headed by Colin Perris, opted for the ParkREG off-street system in Castle Street, because it wanted a solution in keeping with its technology-driven vision of parking control. Perris explained, “Parkeon worked with us to fine tune the ParkREG system to our specific needs and motorists can now park their car and return to the car park without the need to carry, and potentially lose or damage, a ticket. Upon their return, they simply enter their vehicle registration number via the pay station’s colour touch screen and then pay for the duration of their stay. The system also offers the opportunity to subscribe online and pre-book parking without the need for any paperwork or manual pass cards. We’re very pleased with the results.”
