Free parking will be provided in Arklow town for the Christmas period – running from Friday, December 1st to Monday, January 1st.
The decision was agreed by the Cathaoirleach and Members of Arklow Municipal District.
Free parking will apply to all areas with the exception of Main Street, Lower Main Street, Upper Main Street and the Wexford Road. Pay and display will remain as normal in these areas.
The traffic wardens will be monitoring the traffic as normal and enforcing all other aspects of the parking bye laws in relation to illegal parking.

- Free parking between 9.00am and 10.00 am each morning
- 15 minutes official grace period at any time of the day
