Croydon Council has launched a pilot scheme which they hope will reduce the number of thefts of cash from pay-and-display parking machines.
The pilot scheme covers 15 roads: Leslie Park Road, Lebanon Road, Addiscombe Court Road, Tunstall Road, Park Hill Rise, Park Hill Road, Oval Road, Cedar Road, Chisholm Road, Bisenden Road, Brickwood Road, Blake Road, Colson Road, Leslie Grove, Alpha Road.
On these roads all but one machine will be covered. Covered machines will have instructions encouraging residents to either use cashless parking or go to the nearest pay-and-display machine indicated by a map.
The aim of the pilot is to reduce the number of pay-and-display machines on the borough’s streets and, in so doing, reduce the incidence of damage and thefts, which are inconvenient to motorists and costly for the council.
