The pilot is being run by Islington Council and GoPark.
We will be engaging with members of the pilot in a number of ways. Discovering and understanding parking experiences, testing smartphone apps and websites and using plug-in technology to gain data insights. This is a voluntary pilot that we expect to benefit residents and your feedback would be greatly appreciated.

No these all remain in place - the pilot will not affect or change any of them.
GoPark uses information you submit, and also information about your location, the state of your vehicle and how it is driven, which is generated by the plug-in device in your vehicle. This information will be combined with the information about your parking permit status and processed by GoPark on behalf of the Mayor and Burgesses of the London Borough of Islington:
The on-board diagnostics (OBD) refers to a vehicle's self-diagnostic and reporting capability. It has been a legal requirement to have on-board diagnostic ports fitted to vehicles since January 1, 2001 for petrol (gasoline) engined cars and since January 1, 2004 for diesel engined cars - they are usually found under the dashboard, the location of the port varies by manufacturer. In addition to a standardised series of diagnostic codes to help vehicle monitoring, the OBD ports provide real-time data from the vehicle which is what we use for GoPark.
After you complete the signup process, we will be in touch shortly with information about installing your GoPark plug-in device.
