Pay by Phone in Buxton and High Peak car parks

Parking in Buxton

Did you know you can pay for car parking digitally using your phone in all Buxton and High Peak Council car parks? Introduced in December 2021, the PayByPhone scheme offers motorists a convenient and alternative method of payment at pay and display machines, using a smart phone.

Each car park has its own unique Location Number to be quoted when paying.
