- The new system is able to automatically authorise and activate the permit to be used immediately, rather than separately obtaining authorisation;
- For visitors permits, these can also be virtual meaning there is no longer the need to display a card in the vehicle – number plate recognition technology will be used by the Council;
- Anyone using our phone service will no longer be charged premium rate numbers – these will be a local rate and included in free minutes/ texts.
Councillor Roger Symonds (Lib-Dem, Combe Down), Cabinet Member for Transport, said, "The process for purchasing a wide range of parking permits will be much more convenient from March 2013 with our new online system. Bath & North East Somerset Council is making as many services as possible accessible digitally to improve convenience and cut bureaucracy in the organisation. The other ways of making a purchase will remain.
"We have put details about what these improvements mean for anyone who uses a permit on our website."
