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


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

Further to previous notice in relation to the above, Laois County Council is extending the temporary suspension of the enforcement of parking bye-laws for the period Tuesday 19th May to Monday 29th June 2020 (both dates in 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 the phased reopening of business and society as recently set out by Government, and as part of our 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 and will be enforced by An Garda Síochána and Laois County Council Traffic Wardens.

Your cooperation in this regard is appreciated.
