THE COST OF parking in Dublin city is to increase by 30 cent per hour from next Monday, 15 July.

This is the implementation of a change to bylaws that were voted for by Dublin City councillors in February of this year.

The cost will increase from €2.90 to €3.20 in the yellow parking zones, and from €2.40 to €2.70 in the red zones, marking the first time parking costs have increased since 2008.

The changes will also include an expansion of “high-demand” yellow and red zones across the city from next Monday.

The changes mean that parking charges will increase in the area of Phibsborough around the Mater Hospital, in Kilmainham, near the South Circular Road and Dolphin’s Barn, south of the city centre in Ranelagh and Rathmines, and to east of the city near the 3Arena.

“The rationale is to reflect the increased demand for parking in those areas,” the council’s Transport committee was told at the time.
