There are different types of bays within the controlled parking areas in Hastings. Signs next to the bays tell you which type they are and any time restrictions.

By displaying a valid pay and display ticket, or paying for parking using RingGo,  our cashless parking mobile phone service, you can park in:

  • pay and display bays
  • shared use bays (permit holders and pay and display parking).

Most pay and display machines accept both card and coin payment, or you can pay using RingGo. 

Other types of bays such as permit holders only, disabled bays and taxi bays operate at all times unless the sign states otherwise.

Blue badge parking

For details about where you can park if you have a blue badge, see the national guidance on Where can I park?

In Hastings, blue badge holders can park:

  • in designated blue badge parking bays up to the maximum stay permitted
  • in shared use bays or pay and display bays without time limit or payment
  • for up to three hours on a single or double yellow line with the clock set to show the time of arrival, and where loading restrictions are not in force.

You should always refer to local restrictions. Contact the parking team for information on concessions.
