Flexible Parking Restrictions on Certain Streets

More Flexible Parking Restrictions on Certain Streets in Town Centre, West of the Railway

An area within our Town Centre has seen restrictions on street parking become more flexible. The map outlines the area concerned, which corresponds to the immediate surroundings of Connaught Park but also includes Sherwood Crescent, Alexander and Moyle roads and Deal and Hudson avenues.

Within the area concerned:

  • on some streets, on Saturdays and Sundays only, the Town lifted the ban on parking longer than four hours in the same block on a public road during the day (8:00 to midnight);
  • night parking (midnight to 8:00) is now authorized throughout the week and no special permit will be required.

Despite the above, please note that all other applicable restrictions (parking stickers, special 30-minute limits, parking and road signs) continue to apply without exception.

Parking in this flexible zone does not permit free parking during periods of snow removal or for any other roadworks or maintenance work on the public highway for which compliant temporary prohibition signs are visible.  The Town may prohibit parking anywhere on its territory within 4 hours' notice. It is therefore up to all drivers to check the signs regularly and respect temporary bans. If they are not respected, vehicles parked in contravention of the signs will be penalized and may be towed away at the owner's expense.

Town Centre Parking Stickers

When they are available, Town Centre merchants and their employees may obtain an affordable long-term parking stickers. By using parking spaces specially reserved for them, they free up spaces closer to their shops for use by shoppers.
