Car Parking Information

Welcome to the webpage for Car Parks. Derry City and Strabane District Council are responsible for managing 15 charged car parks and 15 car parks which are free to use across the City and District.

Car parks across the Derry City and Strabane District Council area will see some changes coming into effect from 1st April 2024.

Derry City and Strabane District Council have agreed a new enforcement contract with NSL (Marston Holdings Ltd) to provide enforcement services within the 15 Pay and Display car parks across the City and District.

Enforcement has been provided since 2015 through an Agreement with the Department for Infrastructure (DfI) who employ the ‘red coat’ traffic attendants. From the 1st April 2024 Marston Holding’s Ltd operating as NSL will provide those services in Derry City and Strabane District Council as well as seven other council areas in Northern Ireland.

The main change that car park users will see is that the Parking attendants will wear a blue uniform, but their responsibilities and legal authority remains the same, and any Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) issued will be valid.

The new contract will also see the introduction of a new parking system in operation at all Council pay and display carparks in Derry and Strabane. The current cashless parking provider 'JustPark' will be replaced by 'RingGo'.

Car park users will still be able to pay for their parking with cash using the machines provided throughout the City and District.
