Drivers in Hunters Hill can now pay for parking and top up from their phones, with the NSW Government’s Park’nPay app going live in the council area.

Hunter’s Hill Council joins Liverpool and Central Coast councils, as well as The Rocks and parts of Darling Harbour and Pyrmont.

Minister for Customer Service Victor Dominello said the free app had received more than 14,500 downloads since its launch in October 2019, with 93 per cent of drivers giving it the thumbs up.

“I commend Hunter’s Hill Council for coming on board. The app is convenient and makes life easier for drivers by putting the power of parking in their hands,” Mr Dominello said.

“The technology eliminates the need for drivers to walk to a parking meter by allowing them to pay and top up via the app. It also helps drivers avoid parking fines, by sending a notification when their meter is running low or their park is about to turn into a no stopping zone.”

Mayor of Hunter’s Hill Council Mark Bennett said the app was another way in which the council was striving to be innovative and sustainable.

“We’re pleased to provide Hunters Hill citizens a fast and convenient service that also helps them avoid fines”, Clr Bennett said.

“Park’nPay provides a ticketless and environment-friendly way to pay for your parking.”

Drivers simply create an account on the app with their licence plate and payment details. Users have the option of paying with Visa, AMEX, Mastercard, Apple Pay and Google Pay.

Parking inspectors can search for licence plate details using an app on their phone to see if a meter has been paid. Parking meters will continue to accept coins and credit cards.

The NSW Government is working with other councils to have them come on board.
