Pay Parking commenced in Greystones on Tuesday 5th August 2008.
Parking Control in the Town Centre will increase the supply of short term parking and reduce the problems caused with illegal / inappropriate parking.
The Park and Ride facility on Mill Road, which has 462 spaces, will continue to operate free of charge for commuters and those who do not wish to pay to park.
The scheme will operate Monday to Saturday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm, except in the Blue and Purple Zones which only operate Monday to Friday.
The charge is €1 per hour with a minimum payment of 10 cent for 6 minutes. A maximum charge of €3 applies in the all day parking zone.
The duration of parking permitted is determined by the relevant Zone:
Red Zone and Brown Zone (Central area) – 2 hours maximum
Green Zone and Pink Zone (Outer areas) – 4 hours maximum
Blue Zone and Purple Zone (Marine Road and Car Parks) – All Day Parking
Fines will be issued for all parking offences. Fines can be paid online at www.paymyfine.apcoa.ie, by phone (1890 252 799) or by post (Wicklow County Council, P.O. Box 9943, Lucan, Co. Dublin). Full payment instructions are on the back of issued tickets. Payment for fines cannot be accepted at the Wicklow County Council’s Greystones Office.
After 28 days from the date of issue the fine will increase by 50%. If the fine is not paid within 56 days then it automatically escalates to legal proceedings, after which point no payment can be accepted.
APCOA have been awarded the contract to operate all aspects of the scheme on behalf of Wicklow County Council. This includes the provision of traffic warden services, issuing and collection of fines, review of appeals and the administration of permits.
APCOA operate a number of similar schemes in the Greater Dublin Region including Arklow Town.
