Smart parking is just one of the great ideas being implemented as part of our Smart City Strategy and on street parking in Newcastle just got a whole lot easier thanks to the EasyPark app. Parkers can download the app and then have virtual control of any metered parking space, anywhere in Newcastle. Just log in then set your zone and parking time by spinning the wheel - you can even top up your parking remotely.
