Memorandum of Understanding

April 2012 sees the centenary of the sinking of the Titanic. With this in mind, Southampton City Council commenced a process in 2005 of working together with all of the towns and cities, including Cobh, which are linked to this tragedy.

Following initial discussions between officials and members of the Councils in Southampton, Cobh, Liverpool, Belfast, Cherbourg, Halifax (Nova Scotia) and New York, a Memorandum of Understanding has been approved by all the relevant Councils. On Friday 15th June, 2007, the Sheriff of Southampton will visit Cobh to commence the formal process of signing the memorandum. The Mayor of Cobh, Cllr. Nóirín Doyle, in her final formal act as Mayor of Cobh, will sign the Memorandum on behalf of the town of Cobh. The Sheriff of Southampton will also sign the document on behalf of the City of Southampton.

The Memorandum of Understanding commits the various Councils to work together to market and promote activity in connection with the Titanic Centenary. All of the cities involved have a strong and direct connection with the fatal voyage of the Titanic and have agreed to act in partnership together in connection with the centenary commemorations.

Cobh Town Council is delighted that this process is to start in our town. Cobh was the last stopping point of the Titanic on its fatal voyage and it is appropriate that the first formal step in relation to the centenary takes place in Cobh.

At a meeting of Cobh Town Council held on 23 August, 2007, the members of the Council agreed to adopt the Cobh (Traffic & Parking) Bye-Law, 2007. The Bye-Law which will come into effect on Monday 24 September, 2007 will result in the following:

* Persons parking on any street with an existing parking time limit of either 1 hour or 2 hours will not be required to display a parking disk. They will however be required to move their vehicle to another street at the end of the allowed time period.

* Persons parking on any street with an existing parking time limit of 3 or 4 hours will not be required to display a parking disk for the first 2 hours. At the end of that 2 hour period, a driver will be required either to move their vehicle to another street or else display valid parking disks if they wish to remain for a third or fourth hour.

* The changes to the Pay Parking Bye-Law are only in force for a period of 3 months. At the end of the 3 month period, the existing rules in relation to Pay Parking will recommence.

Pay Parking

Pay Parking in Cobh is currently governed by the Cobh (Traffic & Parking) Bye-Law, 2003. In 2007, the Council decided to partially suspend pay parking in the town centre for a period of 3 months, through the introduction of the Cobh (Traffic & Parking) Bye-Law, 2007, and to review the issue at the end of this period.

At a meeting of Cobh Town Council, held on 21 January, 2008, the members of the Council unanimously agreed that the following changes to the pay parking system in Cobh would be incorporated into new permanent Bye Laws:

1.No charge will apply in respect of the first hours' parking in any of the streets currently covered by the 2003 Bye Laws.

2.A charge of €1 per hour will apply for the second and any subsequent hour. There are no proposals to change the existing time limits in force throughout the town.

3.There are no proposals to change the entitlements of any persons entitled to a Residents Parking Permit

4.Provision will be made to facilitate property owners in the town centre who are carrying out major renovations to their property and require constant vehicular access to their property for that purpose.

The members of the Council have instructed the Town Clerk to work with the Council's Solicitors to prepare a draft amended bye law at the earliest possible date. The Draft Bye-Laws will be on public display for a period of 2 months, and any person or organisation who wishes to make a submission on the draft bye-law will be entitled to do so. At the end of the public consultation period, the members of the Council will consider all submissions received and make a final decision at that stage.

The members of the Council have also instructed that the Council's Traffic Warden is to firmly enforce parking regulations in the town. Members acknowledged that the Warden and other Council officials are working to implement the policy introduced by the Council in this regard.

An up to date list of businesses selling parking disks is being drawn up at present and will be advertised shortly.
