Parking meters still don't accept new £1 coins in one in five areas 

Local Government Association transport spokesman Martin Tett said councils that have not yet converted their machines are “well on the way towards doing so”.

He continued: “This has been done despite not receiving a penny in additional funding for making the change, at a time when funding pressures on local services continue.

“Depending on local circumstances, councils offer differing mechanisms for payment for parking, and if someone is incorrectly penalised there is a procedure in place to help resolve issues. Councils are treating their residents fairly, and always will do.”
