The launch of virtual permits for on street parking in Buckinghamshire has been delayed due to technical difficulties.
The permits were originally expected to be launched on Thursday 27th September 2018, however there has been a delay in the assigning of a Merchant ID account number which allows the parking permit website site to take payments for the permits.
Transport for Buckinghamshire have therefore put back the launch date of the new virtual parking permits to Tuesday 30th October 2018.
Until the new virtual scheme becomes operational NSL Ltd will continue to deal with paper permits as normal. Anyone requiring help of with further queries is being advised to contact the NSL helpline on 03432 085544.
The new virtual permits are expected to improve the speed that it takes to apply for, and receive, a permit and will be available for all types of on street parking.
Currently it can take up to 14 working days to receive a paper permit. However a virtual permit becomes live as soon as it is approved so enforcement officers will know instantly if a vehicle has an active permit via their hand held devices.
Virtual permits will be available for all types of on-street parking. This means that people will no longer have to display a permit when parking a car in a permitted area anywhere in Buckinghamshire. This includes resident permits, dispensations and carer permits, as well as other types of on street parking permits.
In order to access virtual permits customers will have to register for a free account from which they can apply for all types of permits.
