Pooley Country Park comprises a 62.5 hectare site that has been designated a “Site of Special Scientific Interest” due to its historical links with the mining industry. It was the first mine to generate its own electricity, in the early 1920s. Pooley Country Park is situated on the Coventry Canal.

The terminal accepts full alphanumeric vehicle registration via a touchscreen keypad, and drivers are required to input this information at the time of purchase. The CWT will then upload the vend data (including the VRN, vehicle registration number) to the Cale WebOffice service. Drivers do not need to return to their vehicles to display a ticket, as the solution employed is ticketless.

The information is then exported to the Council’s enforcement software, which processes data from the other payment solutions, including Pay-by-Phone, permit, etc.

A GPRS-based ANPR camera solution also exports the VRN’s together with the entry and exit times of vehicles that have visited the Country Park.Cale Access AB

A list of vehicles that have not paid for their parking via one of the methods provided (Cale WebTerminal, Pay-by-Phone, permit, etc.) is then supplied to the Council.

This new parking model has replaced barrier systems that tend to reduce traffic flow at peak times, thereby creating queues and causing inconvenience for visitors.
