Loading Bays

Loading bays are provided to allow commercial goods vehicles to make deliveries to premises in the parking areas. They can only be used by vehicles which are categorised as a goods vehicle and are taxed commercially.

A commercial goods vehicle can park free of charge in a loading bay for up to 30 minutes, while they are actively loading or unloading. It is an offence for any other vehicle to park in a loading bay during the hours of its operation. The hours of operation of the loading bay are displayed on the information plate attached to the adjacent pole.

PRIVATE VEHICLES CANNOT PARK IN LOADING BAYS DURING THE HOURS OF OPERATION.

Outside the hours of operation of the loading bay, the prevailing parking regime applies to the area.

Free Parking for Electric Vehicles until end of 2017
As a promotion to encourage the use of electric vehicles, Waterford City and County Council introduced free parking for electric vehicles and plug in electric hybrids.
