Temporary Suspension of Enforcement Measures for Paid Parking Bye-Laws in Co. Laois


Temporary Suspension of Enforcement Measures for Paid Parking Bye-Laws in County Laois

Laois County Council is temporarily suspending the enforcement of parking bye-laws in the period Friday 20th March, 2020 to Friday 17th April, 2020 inclusive. In effect this provides that, in the period specified, there will be no monetary charges applicable to car parking in car parking areas operated by Laois County Council in Portlaoise, Portarlington and Mountmellick.

This decision is taken to support social distancing, reduce cash/coin transactions, recognises reduced demand for medium/long term car parking and is geared to assist in the local, collective response to the Covid 19 pandemic.

This temporary suspension relates to paid parking only and does not relate to other parking offences such as unauthorised parking, on footpaths, in loading bays or in disabled parking bays, parking on double yellow lines etc. Enforcement of such offences will continue, as required, further to the  provisions of Road Traffic Regulations.
