New Parking Meters in Southport ready to accept new Pound coins

GOOD news for those parking in Southport for a change, well goodish… Southport's new ticket machines have all been now been updated again to take the new ₤1 coins as well as the old ₤1 coins. The new 12 sided, ₤1 coin will enter circulation, on Tuesday, 28 March 2017 and the old coins will be fully withdrawn, on 15 October 2017. After 15 October 2017, the round ₤1 will no longer be accepted, as it will no longer be legal tender.

Ever since Sefton Council scrapped the old parking meters, the new meter machines which were installed throughout Sefton have been reportedly working well. We are told that motorists can be rest assured a repeat of the errors of the past will not happen. Unlike events in 2014 and 2015 when the then outdated parking meters left both tourists and locals alike, frustrated as the old machines could not accept the then new coins, such as the "new" 5p. In some ways, free parking would be a better headline, but it's good to know that Southport is now ahead of many other areas, in preparing their machines.
