Off Street Car Parking
COVID-19 arrangements – car parking charges & enforcement
Off-street car parking enforcement and charges in the 13 Council-operated pay and display car parks came into effect from Wednesday 1 July 2020.
The decision to reintroduce off-street car parking enforcement and charges at Council operated pay and display car parks was taken following the Minister for Infrastructure’s decision to resume on-street car parking enforcement and car parking charges from 29 June 2020.
To give people time to prepare and to make them aware of the change, the Council is implementing a seven-day warning period as part of the reintroduction of off-street parking enforcement and charges.
Warning notices will be issued by traffic attendants from Wednesday 1 July for a period of seven days, however from Wednesday 8 July, Penalty Charge Notices will be issued for breach of off-street parking regulations.
Motorists are encouraged to make use of the cashless JustPark parking app as an additional precaution to reduce the need to handle money when using the pay and display machines. If unable to use the app, motorists are advised to practise good hand hygiene as advised by the Department of Health and carry hand sanitiser in vehicles.
Cashless parking is available in all pay and display off-street car parks and on-street charged car parking locations in Northern Ireland operated by the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) and local councils.
Cashless parking provides an alternative way of paying for your parking other than using coins at the pay and display machines.
From 13 January 2020 cashless parking is provided by JustPark in the 13 Pay & Display Off Street Car Parks, owned by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, (FODC).
You will need to register your vehicle and method of payment details with www.justpark.com, or download their app. Once registered, you can pay for and manage your parking using your mobile phone, mobile app or online.
You don’t have to estimate your parking time, as you control when you start and stop your parking. There is no need to show a pay and display ticket on your vehicle, as traffic attendants can check if parking has been paid using cashless parking.
The 8p booking fee for each JustPark parking session is absorbed by Fermanagh and Omagh District Council, allowing customers to access the cashless parking service for free. Normal parking tariffs thereafter apply.
Information on how the service operates is provided on the pay and display machines at each location.
Paying for cashless parking if you don’t have a smartphone

It’s important to note that:
