Have you had your say on the draft Control of Parking Bye-Laws ?

Waterford City and County Council currently has a public consultation process underway, focusing on the Draft Control of Parking Bye-Laws 2023. These bye-laws outline the rules and regulations for parking in the Council’s parking areas, which includes both Waterford City and County.

The bye-laws can be seen here : https://waterfordcouncil.ie/projects/public-consultations/index.htm

Here are some key points from the draft document:

  • The bye-laws apply to all roads under the Council’s control, with the exception of national roads.
  • Parking is generally allowed on roads unless it is prohibited by signs or road markings.
  • The Council may designate certain areas as “Pay & Display” zones, where drivers must purchase a ticket from a parking meter and display it on their vehicle.
  • The Council may also designate certain areas as “permit parking” zones, where only vehicles with a valid permit are allowed to park.
  • Certain types of vehicles, such as heavy goods vehicles, may be restricted from parking in certain areas.
  • The Council may fine, tow or clamp vehicles that are parked in violation of the bye-laws.

Overall, the Waterford City and County Council’s Control of Parking Bye-Laws are designed to ensure that parking in the area is managed effectively and efficiently. By following the bye-laws, drivers assist in traffic management and reduce the risk of accidents and other problems.
