Pay for parking with your mobile using JustPark

Please read our information on how we are supporting residents and businesses, as well as information on affected services.


Car parks are free from Saturday 16 of January 2021 until 17th May 2021

Government advice urges residents to stay local, and to support essential workers.
During this time we want to make it as easy as possible for essential workers to get to and from work. To support them we have removed parking charges and we will keep car parks free until 17th May 2021 to support high streets, when businesses such as non-essential shops, hairdressers and outside hospitality are set to re-open on 12th April 2021.
You do not need to make payment in any Cornwall Council Pay & Display or pay on foot car park until 17th May 2021.
It is really important to;

  • park considerately
  • continue to follow government guidance about travel
  • follow the car park rules shown on the tariff boards
  • do not park in reserved car parks if you do not have a permit.
If you are applying for a disabled exemption you should still submit an application as normal and we will process them as soon as it is possible.

What is JustPark

JustPark is a parking app, website and phone service that allows you to pay for parking in the majority of Cornwall Council car parks.  There are many benefits to using JustPark:

  • it offers convenience and flexibility, enabling you to make stress free parking payments
  • there is no need to find coins to use in the machines
  • you can also top up your parking (subject to the maximum stay allowed) without having to return to the car park.

How much does it cost?

You just pay for the parking you want. There are no extra costs to use JustPark. (Please note: your normal network data charges will apply). If you are using the JustPark phone service you can opt in to receive reminder texts. These cost 10p each and:

  • confirm that your parking session has started
  • remind you that your parking session is about to expire

When using the app, JustPark will send you a free notification to let you know your parking is about to expire.

Register and pay

You will need to register for an account before you can use the service. Registering is very quick and simple. You only need to do it once and your details will be kept. Paying after that could not be simpler.

You can register for JustPark online or download the Apps for iPhones or Android smartphones.
