Motorists in and visiting North Essex can take advantage of a new user-friendly website launched by the North Essex Parking Partnership (NEPP), highlighting information and support about parking across the area.
A key feature of the new website is the improved site navigation and usability. This is due to the addition of a search bar function as well as a clearer, user-friendly layout.
The news and service updates will now have individual pages per article, making it easier to find important information. There will also be a new look for the operational and annual reports, which will be hosted on the website to improve usability and accessibility. The NEPP supports the provision of parking and carries out the enforcement of parking restrictions across Braintree, Colchester, Epping Forest, Harlow, Tendring and Uttlesford.
Its new website, north.parkingpartnership.org gives people information 24/7, 365 days a year on the work the NEPP do to deliver parking services across the area and how to sign up to the cashless parking scheme MiPermit.
It details the steps customers should take if they wish to appeal a penalty charge notice (PCN) they have received. Users will continue to be able to pay PCN’s they have received, through a secure area on the site.
Cllr Sue Lissimore, North Essex Parking Partnership Chair, said: “We know parking is a subject high on many people’s list of issues. We have designed this website to try and make it as easy as possible to use for those living in or visiting North Essex to get the information they need about parking.
“I believe it is important to take advantage of technology to make things as user-friendly and simple for people to find what they need.”
