For the past few years, the Council has permitted free of charge parking for electric vehicles in the public pay and display parking areas in Waterford.
However following a review of our parking charges and given the significant increase in the numbers of EVs on the roads, the Council cannot continue to sustain this incentive.
Accordingly public free parking for EVs within the Council’s pay and display car parks and streets ceased from 1st February, 2023.
The Council will continue to operate free parking for EV and PHEV vehicles while charging at designated public EV charging points throughout Waterford City and County.
The Council will also be facilitating a significant investment which will see 12 new fast EV charging points being delivered across the city and county during 2023.
