Pay and display machines are used at certain on-street parking locations within Wolverhampton city centre.

Parking restrictions are in force:

  • Monday to Sunday: 8.30am to 6pm

Parking charges during restriction periods are:

  • zone 1: 60p per 20 minute period, maximum stay of 2 hours
  • zone 2: 60p per 40 minute period, maximum stay of 2 hours


At pay and display on-street parking locations you must:

  1. Purchase a ticket from the machine nearby.
  2. When you buy a ticket it will indicate the time purchased and the expiry time when you must leave the parking space.
  3. Display the ticket face-up on your dashboard so it is clearly visible from outside the vehicle.

Blue Badge Holders can park in an on-street Pay & Display bay without charge or time limit whilst clearly displaying a valid Blue Badge.
