In April 2014 South Dublin County Council introduced 30 Minutes Free Parking in Council- owned Pay and Display parking spaces in the villages of Tallaght, Clondalkin, Lucan, Rathfarnham, Rathcoole, Templeogue and Palmerston.
To improve this service they have made changes to the Parking Pay and Display Machines to facilitate the issuing of a ticket to customers in order to secure their 30 Minutes Free Parking.
As a result, from Tuesday 6th September 2016:
ALL cars must display a valid ticket or permit
For 30 Minutes Free Parking – press Green Button to issue ticket and display ticket clearly in your car
To Park for more than 30 Minutes – pay relevant tariff and 30 Minutes Free Parking will be added to the expiry of your ticket.
Please note 30 Minutes Free Parking can only be availed of once a day – car registrations will be observed by the Parking Warden and any motorists attempting to abuse the system by availing of the 30 minutes more than once a day will be subject to a fine.
The South Dublin Parking Services Wardens have been requested to place notices on all cars for the next few weeks to inform motorists of this change. A bedding in time will be observed for customers to adjust to the change.
Please note the 30 minutes free parking remains unavailable in residential areas, 10 minutes free grace time is operated in such areas.
Should you require further information about this change, please contact the Pay and Display Section of South Dublin County Council on 01 4149046 or contact any of our wardens on the street.
