Pay and display
Pay and display is available throughout Brighton & Hove.
The cost and maximum allowed time will vary depending on the demand for available spaces.
There is a variety of short, medium and long-term spaces across the city.
Long-term pay and display is not available in extremely busy locations, such as in the centre of Brighton.
