Scan to Pay - QR sticker scam

We are aware of scam ‘Scan to Pay’ QR code stickers being applied to some of our pay-to-park Conditions of Use signs across Westminster, especially in zones E (Mayfair and St James’) and F (Hyde Park, Marylebone and Fitzrovia)

The QR code stickers are being removed by marshals and council officers as they are being discovered, but if one is present at a bay in which you are parking, do not use them under any circumstances.

The council does not use QR codes for payment on its pay-to-park signage, and the only way to pay for parking is through the RingGo app, by phone or by Parking Card.

Our diesel surcharge scheme operates in all zones across the City. 

The scheme, which applies up to a 50 per cent surcharge on pre-2015 diesel vehicles paying to park is part of our ongoing work to improve air quality in Westminster.

During controlled hours, charges apply for parking in paid-for and shared use bays. 

Find out how to pay for parking

Please check on-street equipment or street signs for prices and the maximum stay limit (usually 4 hours). If you stay beyond the maximum permitted stay, you may be issued with a Penalty Charge Notice, even if payment has been made to extend your stay.

Search for your local parking zone or view a map of Westminster's controlled parking zones and residents' parking zones / sub-zones. 

The hours of control illustrated on this Controlled Parking Zones map relate to single yellow lines and pay-to-park bays only.
