Payment kiosks being removed from Municipal Buildings

Cash payment machine at Municipal Buildings

Payment kiosks are being removed from the One Stop Shop at Municipal Buildings in Liverpool this week – with people able to pay at more than 400 locations across the city instead.

They are being decommissioned on Friday 28 July, with customers able to use the city’s 57 Post Offices or 348 PayPoint outlets in local shops instead.

As well as being more convenient for customers, it will also save the city council more than £35,000 a year in transaction costs.

Regular users of the payment kiosks have been informed and communication has also been sent directly to cash paying customers, together with information on the council’s website.

Deputy Mayor, Councillor Ann O’Byrne, said: “This is about offering people the option to pay for council services at a place that is more convenient to them, rather than expecting them to come into the city centre.

“We have taken steps to let those affected know in good time to enable them to plan for the changes.”

The One Stop Shop at Municipal Buildings is due to move to a new location at St John’s Market in the city centre in October, following the recent sale of the building.
