Reintroduction of Paid Parking in Laois from 30th June 2020

On Tuesday 30th June 2020, Laois County Council will re-introduce paid parking in Portlaoise, Portarlington and Mountmellick.

As and from Tuesday 30th June, non-payment of appropriate parking fees may result in a fixed penalty notice.

The reintroduction of paid parking will facilitate increased turnover of spaces in town centres, support local businesses and coincide with the commencement of Phase Three of the Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business.

In keeping with public health guidance, and as an alternative to payment by coin, Laois County Council wishes to bring to your attention the ‘Park by Text / Smartphone App’ option as the safe, convenient, cashless parking payment solution available in Portlaoise, Portarlington and Mountmellick.
