New parking machines

UPDATED car parking machines will be installed at several sites in East Lindsey.

A total of 35 will be updated, including one in Skegness at the Jacksons Corner car park and the ones in Spilsby at Market Place, Buttercross and Post Office Lane.

East Lindsey District Council has agreed to invest £95,000 in a modernisation programme that will see machines installed in the mid-1990s updated with newer, more reliable. machines, with better technology and security.

The machines need replacing as many of their parts are now obsolete and in 2012 the Royal Mint is introducing new coinage that wouldn’t otherwise be compatible.

Car parks are a key income stream for councils, generating £2.6 million of income each year in East Lindsey.

This money is used to provide services to local people.
