Armagh, Banbridge and Craigavon Council to scrap pilot rate of £1 for 5 hours parking
and live on Freeview channel 276
The new rate will see those parking in some council car parks charged 30p per hour. Many of the car parks in the borough are free to use.
"The council provides 34 free off-street car parks across towns and villages and operates a number of pay and display off-street car parks. From Monday 7th August 2023, the discounted pilot rate of five hours for £1 will be removed, however existing tariffs will remain unchanged with the minimum car parking charge of 30p per hour.
"A cashless parking system is available for all our charged car parks via the Just Park app. This system allows you to pay for your parking with a credit or debit card, rather than cash. When paying via the app you do not need to display a ticket.
"For information on the Just Park app visit www.justpark.com or download the app from the Apple or Google Play Store. Additionally, there are coin-operated ticket machines installed in each car park. These machines issue tickets that must be displayed in your vehicle. For more information and a list of all off-street car parks visit, www.armaghbanbridgecraigavon.gov.uk/carparking”
