Motorists in Newtown and Llanidloes will not be able to use the old £1 coin in the towns' car parks by the end of this week.

The old coin will go out of legal tender in two weeks time, but Powys County Council will have updated all of its ticket machines by the end of this week, which means only the new £1 will be accepted in the machines.

The council has started to update its 55 pay and display machines throughout the county.

Cllr Liam Fitzpatrick, Cabinet Member for Highways, said: “The old £1 coin will be losing its legal tender and will be withdrawn from circulation shortly so our parking officers will be updating our ticket machines so they won’t accept these coins.
“By the end of the week, we will have updated all the ticket machines so it is important that those who use our pay and display car parks have the right change with them when they go and buy a ticket. It is also important that they buy the right ticket for the time they are parked there.”
