Dublin Street Parking Increases From Tomorrow

On-street parking charges are to be hiked in Dublin city centre from tomorrow.

They're going up by 10 per cent in yellow 'very high demand' zones.

AA Director of Consumer Affairs Conor Faughnan says the prices aren't going up much but it'll still be hard for motorists and traders.

He says in the central city district costs will go up from €2.90 to €3.20 - that's in the expanded yellow "very high demand" parking zone.

Those parking in an expanded red "high demand" zone will be paying even more as the hourly rate increases from €2.40 to €2.70, an increase of 12.5%.

The only concession will be for those with smartphones accessing the council's Parking Tag app, who will get a 10pc discount in the red and yellow zones.

Although Conor Faughnan believes the hike is inevitable, he says it's another hit for the pockets of consumers and it's not popular with business owners either.

The city hasn't had an on-street parking increase for ten years.
