Public visitor parking

Phone parking is available in all council run car parks and on-street parking spaces. In some locations, we offer the ability to pay in cash too. 

Parking information such as the unique location number and hours of enforcement can be found on the small, condition-of-use signs on the street, whereas tariffs information is provided before payment, when booking a parking session.

Cashless parking in Ealing is provided by PayByPhone. Anyone who has a PayByPhone account can use this service. Though their services are available by phone or internet, we recommend using the app as it is the easiest and quickest way to use PayByPhone. To download the free app please visit The app may also be downloaded directly from the App Store or Google Play.

If you have a query about how the PayByPhone system works, would like to request a refund for a PayByPhone session or give feedback on the system, please email

For those who prefer to use cash, where pay and display machines are available, tariffs are displayed on the front of the machine. Please note our pay and display machines only accept coins and do not offer change.

Where there are no pay and display machines, some locations also offer access to PayPoint shops, in which a parking session can be booked. Parking sessions can be booked over the counter, in the same way as you would purchase any other goods from the shop. Location details of PayPoint shops in the borough can be found at

Removal of pay and display machines

More and more motorists are using cashless parking instead of pay and display machines, even in areas where both options are provided. Like many other local authorities in London, Ealing Council is reducing the number of pay and display machines on the street. It is doing this to reduce expenditure on machine maintenance, reduce street clutter (making footways more accessible), and tackle the problem of theft from the machines (and vandalism). We have begun removing machines starting with where they are least used. We will review the impact of this change periodically before deciding if it worth removing more machines. If you support this change, or object to it, you can let us know at

Parking tariffs

Parking tariffs in Ealing are based on the fuel type and CO2 emissions of the vehicle being parked. They are designed to encourage active travel and the use of vehicles that are less detrimental to air quality and the environment.

The full price of parking on street also varies between £1.80 and £4.20 per hour, depending on the level of parking demand in an area. Discounts of up to 50% are available through our PayByPhone service or at PayPoint terminals for all but the most polluting vehicles. Drivers will not need to know their vehicle specifications – these will be automatically checked and the correct tariff applied when a parking session is purchased using PayByPhone or PayPoint. Cash transactions are charged at full price.
