Powys County Council has confirmed that all of its pay and display machines will be updated to accept the new pound coins by the end of this week.

The current pound coins go out of circulation this month, forcing the council to spend £250,000 on updating its 55 ageing parking machines across the county. 

Cllr Liam Fitzpatrick, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “The old £1 coin will be losing its legal tender and will be withdrawn from circulation shortly so our parking officers will be updating our ticket machines so they won’t accept these coins.

“By the end of the week, we will have updated all the ticket machines so it is important that those who use our pay and display car parks have the right change with them when they go and buy a ticket. It is also important that they buy the right ticket for the time they are parked there.”
