Peel Street Car Park York


Peel Street Car Park


York City Centre



Considered our flagship car park, we are proud to have this as part of the Bransby Wilson portfolio. The Pay-on-Exit system has been well received by visitors to York and showcases parking technology at its best.


Centrally located in the popular city of York in North Yorkshire, the car park attracts locals, tourists, and workers. The site is busy every day of the week and the spaces turn over quickly. Prior to being acquired by Bransby Wilson, the site’s surface and equipment had been left untouched for a number of years.


The site’s surface was in extremely poor condition with numerous large potholes, which often caused damage to customers vehicles when they used the car park. The parking bay lining had worn over time and no longer clearly marked individual spaces. This led to vehicles often parking over two bays or blocking access roads within the car park, restricting movement.

Feedback received from users of the car park was that trips to York could often be longer than they initially planned. As there was no facility to extend/top up parking stays remotely, customers were forced to return to their vehicles.

Bransby Wilson Solution

  • Bransby Wilson invested heavily into Peel Street and completely resurfaced the entire car park. This also enabled the car park layout to be restructured, creating 16 more spaces and increasing revenue potential.
  • New payment terminals installed to allow payment by cash, card, and include contactless payment options e.g. Pay-by-Phone/pay by mobile app.
  • The site was changed from Pay-and-Display to Pay-on-Exit so visitors to York only paid for the duration they stayed. A popular system that has been received well, as visitors no longer feel rushed when enjoying the city.
  • With the complete overhaul of the site, Bransby Wilson took this opportunity to introduce electric vehicle charge points to support the council’s push to reduce CO2 within the city walls.


With Bransby Wilson’s management in place, and the resurfacing of the car park, use of the site was made much more efficient for visitors. Due to this site’s central location and the high traffic volume, it was integral that an efficient system was put in place, and our solutions provided this, as well as increasing revenue for the client.
