National parking law changes

Why will my parking action be deactivated on 31 December?

From 1 January 2018, the national parking laws are changing. One of the changes is that you now have to state exactly how long you are going to park for. No worries! You can still easily pay for your parking with PARK NOW. But to avoid any unpleasant surprise as a result of this change, we’ve made a few adjustments to our service. These aim to help you stay on top of your parking costs.

Therefore we need to deactivate all active parking actions on 31 December at 23.59. On New Year’s Day, there is no paid parking in Clermont-Ferrand, Grenoble, Houilles, Limoges, Niort and Valenciennes. From 2 January you could again easily pay for parking with PARK NOW.
