Runnymede ANPR System

Due to the consistent issue with the parking facilities at Runnymede Leisure Centre we have introduced an Automatic Number Plate Recognition system into the main car park and the car park at the rear of the centre. The introduction of this system is to improve availability of parking spaces for all of our customers when they arrive at the centre.

The ANPR system is currently in a test phase and not currently live, meaning there will currently be no fines for parking in the car park. We will let all of our customers know the go live date in due course. Please note if you are a customer and receive a fine we still have the ability to cancel any fines given to valid customers. 

We ask that all customers who use the car park still input their number plate into the tablet provided at reception to help us with the introduction of this system.

Upon the go live date there will be a 30 minute grace period to enter your number plate into the tablets at the reception desk before a fine is given. The ANPR system will only be in place Monday to Friday from 7:30am and 6pm.
