New Parking incentives introduced

“BUY 1st Hour, get 2nd Hour Free”

From Thursday 11th June, 2020 to 31st July, 2020 a new parking concession to incentivise business and trade in Waterford City Centre will be introduced.  The initiative applies to car parks operated privately and to those run by Waterford City & County Council.

Under the scheme, when a motorists pays for the 1st hour parking, they will receive the 2nd hour free.  Pay & Display machines have been calibrated to add the time to the ticket dispensed.

All the usual parking enforcement will apply and all machines will be calibrated to issue a 2 hour ticket when one hour is requested.

Due to the current remedial works in Grattan Square, Dungarvan, parking is FREE in this Car park from Friday 12th June, 2020 to Friday 31st July, 2020.

Some FAQs on the scheme are listed below … please email contact@waterfordcouncil.ie for further information.
