Car parking changes for Mid Ulster from 1 April

Mid Ulster District Council has agreed a new contract with Marston Holdings Ltd to provide enforcement services at its 22 public car parks, beginning on Monday 1 April 2024.
Since 2015 enforcement had been provided through an agreement with the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) who employ the ‘red coat’ traffic attendants.
From Monday 1 April, the main change for car park users is that parking attendants will wear a blue uniform, but their responsibilities and legal authority will remain the same and any Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) issued will be valid.
The new contract will also see the introduction of a new cashless parking system in operation at the Council’s six pay and display car parks in Dungannon and Magherafelt.
The ‘Just Park’ app will be replaced by the ‘RingGo’ app, enabling car park users to continue to pay via their mobile devices, at car park pay stations or via a telephone call, whichever option suits best.
Car park users can download the new ‘RingGo’ app onto their mobile devices for use from 1 April.
Car park season tickets, which are already available at most pay and display car parks, will continue to be available for those who wish to purchase in advance.

Tickets already purchased will remain valid until their expiry date.
From Monday 1 April, parking complaints, including PCN appeals, will be dealt with by NSL (Marston Holdings). You can contact them, and/or make a payment, online, by telephone at: 03330 068 351 or by post at: Northern Ireland Consortium, PO Box 378, Sheffield, S98 1YU.
