Parking at Ponteland Memorial Hall
The car park is privately owned and managed by a CIO Trust but contracted to Parking Eye who manage the car park for the Hall. The car park is expensive to maintain and requires several thousands of £ every year to repair, clean, re-mark bays, lighting, insurance and security. Therefore the Ponteland Memorial Hall makes a nominal parking charge.

Parking at the Ponteland Memorial Hall: Frequently Asked Questions:
Why has the Memorial Hall introduced charging for the car park?
Maintenance of the car park is very expensive and our income from hiring rooms is not enough to cover it.
How were the fees decided?
The fees were set as low as possible and designed to account for the wide range of car park users.
Why can’t I pay on site with cash or my bank card?
The infrastructure to deal with cash or card payments would have been prohibitively expensive and there are also security considerations.
What are the options for paying parking fees?
You can either use your phone, following the instructions on the signs, or set up an account in advance with Good2Go (www.parkgood2go.com).
What happens if I exceed the time paid for by PaybyPhone when I return to the car?
If you are aware of this before leaving the car park you can purchase extra time at PaybyPhone.
How many times in a day can I park?
There is no limit on the number of times you can use the car park in a day
What is the time limit before I return to the car park?
There is no restriction on return time.
If I leave the car park without paying, what happens?
Unless you pay by phone or register with Good2Go before midnight on that day you may receive a Parking Charge Notice.
Do I have to pay for using ParkGood2go.com?
Yes, each time you park you will have to pay a small additional charge.
Do I have to pay for using PaybyPhone?
We recommend you use www.parkgood2go.com instead as there is a lower risk you will incur fines. But you can also PayByPhone but this will involve work for you each time you park you will need to use the app and choose the correct number plate, the location code and duration you wish to park for. And there is a small additional charge each time you park, depending on the length of time you stay. Due to the manual actions required more people make human errors and incur fines using the phone method.
What is a tariff fee?
The tariff fee is the charge for the time your car is parked as shown on the car park signs.
What is a PCN?
A Parking Charge Notice or PCN is the notice you will receive indicating the charge you may have to pay for failing to pay the parking fee. It will be reduced if you pay promptly. The notice will also inform you how to appeal.
What happens if I don’t pay for parking?
If you use the car park and do not pay for your parking you may be sent a Parking Charge Notice (PCN). These are handled separately from the usual payment methods for parking. The notice will be sent via letter and is not connected to any of the payment methods used for paying parking fees.
Important: The online payment system for parking fees is different from payment for a a Parking Charge Notice. A motorist will never be charged automatically for a PCN. The bank account associated with the online payment is completely secure and will never incur additional charges. A PCN will never be taken automatically from Good2Go or PaybyPhone. If you incur a Parking Charge Notice you will have to pay it voluntarily and separately and will not be charged from your usual parking fee account.

The Pre-Pay option allows you to use your credit or debit card to topup and maintain a balance on your good2go account which will then be used to pay for parking. Your balance can either be automatically topped up or manually topped up. If you choose automatic topups, this can be by a pre-agreed amount or by the amount required to maintain a specified balance. You will be able to view the individual parking transactions by reviewing your good2go account statements.
The Pay As You Park option will enable you to register the credit or debit card details that you want your parking transactions to be charged to. Each individual parking transaction will be debited to your credit or debit card shortly after concluding your parking session. If charged to a credit card then the parking charges will be settled as and when you pay the credit card bill.
Remember, you will still be able to view the individual parking transactions by reviewing your good2go account statements.
