Waterford City & County Council Policies
- Single Use Plastics
In 2020, Waterford City & County Council adopted a Single Use Plastics Policy. This policy requires events funded by Waterford City & County Council to eliminate single use plastics, segregate waste and dispose of it properly. Compliance with this policy will be a criteria of funding and applicants such familiarise themselves with this policy.
- Temporary Event Signage
Waterford City & County Council recognises the value of advertising signs to visitors, customers, businesses, community groups etc. and to the general vitality and vibrancy of an area. It also recognises, however, that they can have a negative environmental impact as well as being a hindrance to traffic safety and safe pedestrian movement.
Events planning on erecting temporary signage should read the Temporary Signage Policy and complete an application form. There is no fee for temporary signage but signage erected without permission will be removed by Waterford City & County Council and will result in a fine of €150 under the Litter Pollution Act. Failure to comply with any Council policy may also affect your grant application.
