Housing; Local Government and Heritage | Revenue for public car parking in Dublin city over last five years

To ask the Minister for Housing; Local Government and Heritage the amount paid by motorists in public car parking including kerbside throughout Dublin city in each of the past five years to date; and if he will make a statement on the matter.

REPLY

The elected members of local authorities have direct responsibility in law for all reserved functions of the authority, including adopting the annual budget and authorising borrowing, and are democratically accountable for all expenditure by the local authority. It is a matter for each local authority to determine its own spending priorities in the context of the annual budgetary process, having regard to both locally identified needs and available resources.

The loss of parking revenues, as with other income streams, due to the Covid – 19 pandemic, impacted Local Authority finances. As a result Dublin City Council received support for this loss of income in 2020 and 2021 and these figures together with the parking income figures for the past 5 years are included in the attached table.

Income collected from parking charges can be found in Appendix 4 of the Local Authority Annual Financial Statements which are published on my Department’s website: gov.ie – Local Authority Annual Financial Statements (www.gov.ie)
