Car Park Charges and Covid-19 Update
We will be reintroducing charges within all our Pay and Display car parks commencing on Monday 17 August 2020. The tariff will remain unchanged at 40p per hour.
Car parking provision will be kept under continual review as our towns and City begin the slow journey to recovery in response to Covid-19.
All Newry, Mourne and Down District Council Pay and Display car parks will continue to accept coinage at Pay and Display ticket machines, however to further enhance this transition and improve the safety of our customers, we would encourage all users to download the JustPark Cashless Parking App onto their mobile device and pay for parking with a credit or debit card via this platform, thus avoiding the need for cash payment at a machine.
For more information on Cashless Parking visit www.nidirect.gov.uk/articles/street-and-streetparking or alternatively visit the JustPark website or call 02891 248440.
All 11 pay and display car parks have a quantity of season tickets available for purchase on a monthly or quarterly basis which offers a reduced parking rate. For availability and pricing information, contact NSL Limited on 033 0135 8927.

Penalty Charge Notices (PCN’s)
The DFI contract NSL Services Group (NSL), to provide enforcement of parking contraventions in Council car parks. Traffic Attendants regularly patrol car parks and issue Penalty Charges Notices (PCN’s) to vehicles in contravention of the Off Street Parking Order for the following offences:
- parking without clearly displaying a valid pay and display ticket
- parking in excess of paid time
- not parking wholly within the markings of the bay / space
- parking in a disabled persons’ parking space without clearly displaying a valid disable persons’ badge
- parking in an Electric Vehicle charging place during operating hours without charging your vehicle.
